Blackleg, pulpy kidney (enterotoxaemia), black disease, tetanus, and malignant oedema are common causes of death in unvaccinated sheep and cattle. Other animals, particularly goats, are also susceptible.
Chickens are easy to keep healthy, but there are some common conditions and diseases that you need to watch for or you may end up having a crook chook.
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.
