Lambing Clinic

March 14, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm


SUNBURY PA: Pack years of lambing experience into one day with small ruminant veterinarian Dr. Jackie Rapp, a panel of shepherds, and a barnful of lambs. Morning indoor session covers Pre-Lambing Management, Normal Birthing Process, Deciding Whether to Call the Vet, Top Ten Tips for saving lambs, and a necropsy to determine “Why Did This Lamb Die?” Then we’ll head to the lambing barns to demonstrate management practices such as ear-tagging, tube feeding, tail docking, nursing difficulties, and common problems. Even more important, we’ll show you how to recognize the behavior of healthy newborns who don’t need your help. We will be in the middle of lambing 130 ewes at the time of the workshop, creating ample opportunity for observation and case studies. .
