Managing Fresh Cows in the Shed

One of the most important things about milking fresh cows is to ensure that the milk is suitable to go in the vat.

The main roundworm of cattle is Ostertagia ostertagi, known commonly as the brown stomach worm. Control of ostertagia will incidentally control other roundworms of lesser importance.

Raising Poddy Lambs

Orphan lambs may arise after the death of the ewe or due to abandonment or rejection, especially by first time or maiden ewes and those with multiple lambs. Raising orphan or poddy lambs by hand is a lot of hard work, but the results are well worth it.
