This webinar will discuss getting nutrition, hygiene and colostrum management right.
Kate will also talk about the appropriate use of antibiotics and engaging with farmers and the approach to investigation of neonatal ill health.
A recent survey showed over 50% of lambs were given antibiotics at birth as part of management and disease control. Many farmers have relied on antibiotic use to prevent disease and losses, and have thought it was the right thing to do.
We need to encourage a move away from this approach and the webinar will outline a practical approach to neonatal lamb health including Getting nutrition, hygiene and colostrum management right.
