This half practical, half theory based workshop will cover colostrum management, condition scoring, ewe nutrition, ewe and lamb disease risks and neonatal management. We will practice administrating intraperitoneal injections (IP) and practice difficult deliveries with a lambing simulator as well as the opportunity to quiz Ealasaid Dick the vet with any of your lambing time vet questions.
