Lambing season is one of the busiest times of year for any sheep farmer, and it can quickly become overwhelming and tiring – but we’re here to help.
It is essential to perform pre-breeding health checks on any breeding rams, as 10% of rams will have poor fertility, reducing overall flock profitability.
A compact lambing period means that the increased frequency of checks and increased staffing required at lambing is needed for a shorter period.
We vaccinate against clostridial diseases, as well as abortion, early embryonic death, barrenness and abortion, and footrot.
Using a teaser, a vasectomised ram, is an effective way to influence the natural breeding cycle of sheep, tightening the lambing period and encouraging ewes into season.
