Sheep & Goat

  • Breeding Season

    As breeding season approaches there are several management practices to be considered. Rams are certainly half of the flock and genetically much more than half building a future. I could always justify paying a premium for an outstanding ram, not so much for a ewe. With that consideration only top...
  • New Opportunity

    This August we will have the opportunity to supply a selected number of Tractor Supply stores with our Selenium/Iodine with TM- item -#6249 and our Selenium/Iodine/Vitamin E with TM Item- #8770.

  • Straight Talk: June 2017

    I get a number of calls through the season when producers call and report finding dead lambs that had appeared healthy and are now dead. In younger lambs, often starvation is the cause. If noticed before death, tubing with warm lamb milk replacer or preferably a milk product that has...
  • Abortions

    While it doesn’t seem so now is the time to talk about abortion and we will do so in our upcoming Webinar June 12. Certainly if one chooses to vaccinate for chlamydia that is to be accomplished 30 and 60 days prior to breeding. Ewes not previously vaccinated for Vibrio...
  • Questions & Answers

    Recently, we have had quite a few questions from producers and would like to share some of them. Question: We have some ewes that had their lambs weaned off 5 days ago. Had all feed taken away with little water for day 1 - 2 then on days 3...

  • Straight Talk: VFD Update

    VFD Update Veterinary Feed Directive rules. They are not simple and I have had numerous calls from producers and veterinarians trying to get on the same page. On December 2nd, 2016 the rule was amended to allow extra label use in minor species. This was followed by a Compliance Policy...

Ewes carrying multiple lambs have less rumen capacity, and at the same time require an increase of 50-75% more calorie intake the last several weeks of gestation. Once a ewe...

  • It's Time to Think About Abortion

    I will cover sheep and goats.  They are very similar but will point out some of the minute differences. First rule, don’t feed on the ground, these are ingested infections, not venereal. Toxoplasmosis, coccidiosis of cats when ingested by non-immune pregnant females they will likely abort.  There are no vaccines...
