WEBINAR SERIES: 20 minutes to save 20 hours - tips for sheep health west of the Newell

Spring lamb marking - kill two birds with one stone

12.30pm, Friday, 17 September 2021 

In the second session of our Summer Webinar Series, District Veterinarians Justine McNally and Shaun Slattery are giving an overview of the key procedures at lamb marking.

They will cover best practice techniques to avoid those once in a decade lamb marking disasters and longer term animal health issues. This will include:

  • what vaccines to use, and vaccination must dos.
  • why getting tail length right is important
  • fly protection options for wounds in the light of insecticide resistance
  • pain relief options
  • why drenching lambs at marking is usually pointless.

The aim of the webinar is to help you set up your lambs for not only the coming months but for their lifetime. We will also touch on basic ewe management procedures that can be performed at lamb marking to optimise what is achieved when you have the mob in the yards.

In 20 minutes we will give you key steps to ensure the best outcomes for your lamb mob, with the aim to maximise survival to weaning and long term production goals.

Additional sessions to come over the next couple of months, include: 

  • Five tips at weaning - help maximise animal health with simple strategies 
  • Culling - who Ewe need to expel 
  • Preparing Ram flock for joining - the five Ts and other tips to avoid joining disasters
Registration details for future sessions coming soon!
