This is an excellent opportunity to learn how to increase your odds of getting live lambs on the ground and off to a good start! This school will be held in a commercial sheep lambing barn, so there will be ample hands-on opportunities.
“EMPHASIS TO BE HANDS-ON EXPERIENCE” Ewes: Lambing problems, obstetrics, grafting, foot trimming and health. Lambs: Castration, docking, vaccinations, and emergency situations as they arise. The school will also include discussions on sheep nutrition and facilities. Participants are also asked to wear warm, appropriate barn clothing and bring clean rubber boots! All footwear will be disinfected before entering the barn. Cost: $40 per person. The school will be limited to 12 participants. Selection for the school will be based on the first 12 registered. Preference will be given to those attending for the first time. Lunch will be provided with registration.
DEADLINE FOR REGISTRATION Monday, January 15, 2018 (Or until the class is filled)
Remember, first come, first served, because, unfortunately, we can only accommodate twelve people in the class. Fees will be returned if the class is filled. If you must cancel your plans to attend, please notify us four (4) working days prior to the lambing school, so that we can still refund your money. To register for the class, please fill out the enclosed form. Registration forms and fees must be received by January 15th to reserve your place in the class. All class participants will receive a packet of information. For more details on the Lambing School please call John Fine at 541-673- 0369 or email at johnandpeggyfine@charter.net.
