Good point with the blue spray, will check that one tomorrow.
Thought about the cross contamination. Have been cleaning between lambs to try to prevent this and they stand in a dry shed as long as i can do to let it soak in and dry before they go back with the rest.But yes i had thought am i doing more harm than good! But you feel you have to try dont you!
We do only have a small number this year as we culled out some older ewes and have some of our own replacements coming through for next year.
Will be jabbing tomorrow i think and in future maybe footbathing before they go on this field as its by a stream and is always quite lush.Hopefully wont need to jab in future years then! Its tricky footbathing as we dont have a permenant set up or a fancy alligator jobby! a few hurdles and a concrete area are all we can manage!
This is why i love keeping sheep (most of the time!) your always learning!
My assisted lambing skills are getting better each year and now it seems im on a foot learning curve!
