Lambing school beneficial for goat producers too

Lambing School will be held Tuesday, January 23 at the University of Kentucky C. Oran Little Research Center Sheep Unit.

This school is designed for new and prospective sheep producers, although veteran producers are welcome.  Topics of discussion, demonstration and hands-on include ewe management prior to, during, and after lambing.  Greatest shepherding expertise is required during the first week after lambing, therefore attendees will have the opportunity to work with and learn from ewes that will be lambing at the Sheep Unit on January 23, 2018.

"This would be something good for everyone, even goat producers, as much of the same procedures are needed for goats," added Ken Andries, Assistant Professor, Animal Science, Kentucky State University.

The school begins at 10 a.m. (EST), with lunch on your own from 12 to 1 p.m., and will conclude by 3 p.m.  There is no preregistration or fee.  However, the school does ask that participants call Dr. Don Ely at 859-257-2717 or email him at prior to January 19 to verify attendance.
