Millions of lambs and ewes die each year during the lambing season. The reasons behind this high level of perinatal mortality are not easily explained and problems that do arise may be difficult to predict. This fully revised new edition of Practical Lambing and Lamb Care attempts to unravel this complex subject by providing practical guidance and information on all aspects of lambing and lamb care. It covers the major diseases and problems in lambs, from poisoning to foot and mouth disease, and includes chapters on the health of the ewe (including abortion issues), preventative methods, lambing techniques and also considers animal welfare issues. A first aid manual for all sheep farmers and veterinary students, with essential information on improving lamb mortality and avoiding stress at lambing time New material on zoonotic infections, handling and storage of drugs, flock health plans, and considerations for organic producers Lots of colour photographs to aid in the diagnosis, treatment and management of disease
