02 Apr
April 2, 2017

Spring Sheep Day is a resounding success with over 100 participating – excited to learn hands on and share knowledge about sheep and lamb health! “Thanks to U of M Veterinary Diagnostic Lab and Minnesota Lamb & Wool Producers Assoc for a great day.”

Hands-on demos included: ewe health – assessing body condition, disease symptoms, collecting blood samples; examining euthanized ewes for signs of OPP, CL, and other health issues; and lamb necropsy station determining causes.

Great lecture sessions on sheep diseases, focusing on Scrapie and OPP, and other health concerns, and an OPP producer panel, and finished the day with U of M Sheep Barns or DVL tour.
