Mark your calendar and plan to attend the 2020 Pipestone Lamb and Wool Program Lambing Time Short Course and Bus Tour which will be held Feb. 14-15 in Pipestone, Minn. We have an excellent program planned, and we will be touring outstanding sheep operations. The program starts with Feb. 14 evening discussion from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. The program on Feb. 15 will begin at 8 a.m. with lambing time management and health topics. The afternoon will be spent touring and viewing two successful sheep operation. The program will conclude at 5 p.m.

The purpose of this short course and bus tour is to help producers recognize and effectively deal with common lambing time problems. We are fortunate to have Dr. Goelz, a highly qualified sheep veterinarian, on the program to share his thoughts on common lamb and ewe health problems. Touring two top area sheep operations Feb. 15 will provide an opportunity for individuals to see firsthand how other sheep producers recognize and deal with lambing time problems. You will see how they lay out their lambing barn, set up creep pens, graft lambs, dock, vaccinate, feed and management of their lambs and ewes. The farm demonstration session will provide an excellent learning opportunity.

For those who are unable to attend our short course and bus tour please consider our web based Lambing Time Management Series which consists of six recorded topics that can be viewed through an internet connection in the comfort of your home or office.
