This short course is available to help producers recognize and effectively deal with common lambing time problems. The short course focuses on the management prior to, during and after lambing and the affect it has on lamb losses, pounds of lamb marketed and input costs and labor requirements. The virtual tour will provide producers the opportunity to see first-hand how other producers recognize, manage, and deal with lambing time challenges.
