FREE! Vitamin & Mineral Deficiencies and Excesses in Sheep - Online with Zoom

7 February, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

This is a theory workshop with lots of pictures and it is recommended that you watch on a PC monitor rather than a phone screen if you can.  The advantage of a Zoom course is that there is no travelling and you can drink as much coffee (or alcohol) as you want while you listen!

Jenny has had sheep for more for more than 20 years.  Most of the time sheep are hardy animals but they do suffer from various vitamin and mineral deficiencies and excesses and these are most noticeable when sheep are stressed.  Lambing is a very stressful time for the ewe and the new born lamb (and probably equally as stressful for the shepherd!) so this is why we are running the workshop in the run up to lambing time.  Prevention is always better than cure and Jenny will cover common ailments and what you can do about them.  There will also  be a question and answer session at the same time on the following day - so email Jenny using the following link   email our training organiser  after this Zoom event and we can cover your questions and comments on the 8th Feb at 7 p.m. (if you book on this event you will also receive a link for the event on the 8th Feb, but if you don't want to come,  just don't click on the Zoom link).  This year we are also running another Free Zoom workshop Lambing Theory on 22nd February (Q & A 23rd Feb) and also a practical lambing morning with Peter Froggatt which is highly recommended if you are new to lambing (they are bookable on our website - you need to be a member of the SFTG for the practical lambing).
