Seasonal Sheep Newsletter

With the lambing period creeping up on us again this newsletter will look at perinatal lamb care and the treatment of hypothermic lambs.Care of the lamb starts prior to birth by reducing the risk of diseases such as toxoplasmosis and enzootic abortion which, as well as causing abortions, can lead to the birth of weak lambs. Vaccination programmes are available for both of these. Addressing ewe nutrition prior to lambing and ensuring hygiene in the lambing area is also very important.
