  • Straight Talk: Sheep & Goat News February 2014

  • Cervix Fails to Dilate: Sheep & Goat News February 2014

David Mellor, a veterinary physiologist with Massey University in...
  • Sheep & Goat News - Vol. 33, Issue 8, October 2013

    Foot Rot in Sheep My first thought is this is the most dreaded disease in the industry bar none. Whenever I purchase sheep, they have their feet trimmed and bathed in formaldehyde and isolated for 30 days from the rest of flock, feet examined and bathed again before introduction. The...
