Far too many lambs are lost unnecessarily during the first few days of life.  This programme illustrates the techniques that can be used by shepherds in both lowland and hill situations to reduce losses to a minimum.

The techniques shown are presented by David Henderson with the help of experienced shepherds and students and shows useful and practical information for both farmers and smallholders, whether they be beginners or more experienced shepherds.

This detailed lambing programme includes vital information on the management of the ewe during pregnancy, feeding during pregnancy, vaccinations, the importance of colostrum and feeding requirements, advice on the lambing pen and post lambing accommodation and care.

David Henderson also examines vulnerability issues of newborn lambs including infections and loss of heat and energy, hypothermia, how to take a lamb's temperature, how to treat lambs above and below six hours old, intraperitoneal injection of glucose, the use of warming boxes and after-care.  Castration, assisted lambing and fostering and medical risks are also discussed in some detail.

David's experience includes work as a shepherd, veterinary surgeon, lecturer and past president of the Sheep Veterinary Society.
