Dairy Sheep - Newborn Lambs

Care for newborn lambs is critically important. Nearly twenty percent of lambs die before weaning. Eighty percent of those losses occur during the first ten days. Good lamb care can significantly increase the number of lambs that complete the weaning process and enter the flock healthy. Adequate shelter from the elements, dry/warm bedding, udder care and proper vaccinations are all contributing factors to optimal number of healthy lambs.

Best success this lambing season!
