Far too many lambs are lost unnecessarily during the first few days of life. This programme illustrates the essential flock management techniques that can be used by shepherds and smallholders in both lowland and hill situations to keep losses to a minimum.

The techniques are presented by David Henderson with the help of experienced shepherds and students. David's experience includes work as a shepherd, farm foreman, veterinary surgeon and lecturer in animal health. Before retirement he was director of farms at the Moredun Research Institute, Edinburgh. David is a past president of the sheep Veterinary Society and author of The Veterinary Book for Sheep Farmers

This detailed sheep lambing video illustrates the techniques that can be used by shepherds to reduce losses from hypothermia and infection. Methods illustrated include intraperitoneal injection, the use of warming boxes, colostrum, the stomach tube and fostering.

  • Areas covered include:
  • Management During Pregnancy
  • Colostrum
  • The Organisation of Lambing
  • Vulnerability of Lambs
  • Hypothermia
  • Castration and Tailing
  • Some further Medical Risks
  • Assisted Lambing and Fostering
  • Hillside Sheep

Presented by an expert, but in a practical and down to earth way, this is a clear and well produced DVD demonstrating the essential basics of lambing and lamb management. We thoroughly recommend "Lamb Survival" to shepherds, smallholders and hobby flock owners, as an invaluable guide to the care and welfare of lambs as well as the profitability of large and small scale sheep enterprises.
