Lamb Meeting February 2022

The CVG sheep focus group – Vicki, Eleanor, Sarah and Hamish, held their first on-farm group meeting kindly hosted by the Rattray family at West Park farm. We welcomed Kim Hamer from Glasgow University as specialist speaker who talked about lamb survival and ewe management at lambing time. The whole meeting lasted 2 hours, with some good group discussion of different management types, and some hands on condition scoring of pregnant ewes at the end.

The sheep focus group has been set up to provide an inhouse team of experts who can update clients with best practice management, parasite forecasting, vaccine selection and availability, and any other sheep-focussed questions you might have! There will be 2-3 meetings per year and moving forward, we would like to invite anyone who is interested.

Keep your eye out for future dates!
