Fall Management Considerations

17 Oct
October 17, 2016
  • Lambing in January?
    • Time to pull the rams out?
    • Time to give the ewes their mid-gestation booster shot?
  • Lambing in Spring?
    • How are the rams looking?
    • Have they been sheared and are the feet trimmed?
    • Are they in good condition or should you up their feed quantity or quality a little before you put them to work?
  • Hay tends to lose its vitamins after a few months.  Adding a vitamin mix to your ewe ration this time of year can have good results.
  • Feeds you might not think of feeding your sheep but that they’ll probably love
    • Windfall apples – many days in the fall our ewes get 10-12 apples each
    • Waste pumpkins and squash.  Throw the ones you can’t use in the sheep pen so they break up.  Pretty soon the sheep will be breaking them up.

Summer is in full swing

30 Jun

First crop hay is under our belt and many are already starting the second cut thanks to the rains some have received. Lambs are being marketed and most ewe flocks are on pasture resting up before the rams are turned in. The show season is well under way and the kids are working on their 4-H sheep projects.  Be sure to offer a helping hand to these young shepherds not only showing their sheep, but educating them on the care, feeding and healthcare of their projects. Let’s help our future shepherds get started on the right foot!

It was a cold but sunny weekend, but that did not seem to stop the people from coming out to the festival. Lots of people walked around with bags full of item sold by all the vendors. The Minnesota Lamb and Wool was busy with people shopping.
