to 3 p.m. E.S.T.
Research Center Sheep Unit, Versailles, Ky
The annual Lambing School will be offered at the University of Kentucky Animal Research Center Sheep Unit, Versailles, Ky., on Tuesday, January 20, 2009. The school will focus on the essential skills needed by producers to manage their ewes through the critical stages of late gestation, lambing, and early lactation. New producers can learn how to manage ewes and lambs during the lambing season. More experienced producers will have the opportunity to review their established managerial techniques.
Discussions, demonstrations, and hands-on opportunities related to signs of approaching parturition, care of the newborn, equipment needed, docking, castrating, vaccinating, and feeding before and after lambing will be provided during the session that will begin at 10:00 a.m. and end at 3:00 p.m. EST. There is no pre-registration or registration fee. Attendees will be expected to follow biosecurity procedures and cannot have been outside the U.S. during the 7 days prior to this school.
Directions to the Sheep Unit are attached. For more information, contact Don Ely at
