Don’t forget to attend our upcoming Lambing Clinic to be held Saturday March tenth at the Epsom Fire Station.
Things get underway at 9:00 AM with a lecture on nutritional requirements for the ewe pre and post lambing presented by Andrew Beal, Poulin grain representative.
Then we have scheduled Dr Nate Harvey DMV who is a NH native recently returned to the state and hoping to establish a large animal practice in our general area. He will be discussing lambing do’s and don’t’s from the medical point of view.
The clinic will be ending with a talk by local shepherd and well known shearer Jeff Jorden. Jeff has been around sheep his whole life and has plenty of hands on knowledge of best sheep care practices on the farm.
The clinic is expected to run approximately three hours and is open free to anyone interested in lambing procedures. Remember, new shepherd or old, NHSWGA member or not, there’s always something to learn when listening to other people’s experiences with sheep.
Hope to see you there.
