Care of the newborn calf & lamb

It’s that time of year when farms are busy with new arrivals! In this blog I will give a few tips to ensure the newborn calf and lamb gets the best chance of survival:

  1. Good Health – Ensure the cow and ewe are in the best health possible. Carry out dosing where applicable to ensure control of fluke and worms.
  2. Mineral Supplements – Ensure mineral supplementation is carried out. Ewes should receive adequate feeding of concentrates to minimise energy deficiency and twin lamb disease.
