Lambing Kidding School

January 19th, 2010 · No Comments

The Ohio Heartland Sheep Improvement Association is sponsoring a Lambing and Kidding School  on Saturday January 30, 2010.   Classroom Session I will be from 9 – 11:30 AM at the Applewood Community Room Center in the Applewood Student Housing Complex on the ATI campus, 1328 Dover Road, Wooster with Dr. Eric Shaver DVM of East Holmes Veterinary Clinic in Millersburg providing leadership.   Dr. Shaver has conducted several of our previous schools and will cover many topics ranging from ewe condition before lambing to providing care of newborn lambs and their mothers.   This session is open to anyone who would like to learn more about lambing/kidding.  We will then break for lunch which is “on your own”.   There are several eating options nearby – we hope to have a list available.   Session II  will run from 1 – 3 PM  at the OARDC Sheep Facility barn, 5651 Fredericksburg Road, Wooster with Doug Clevenger, OARDC Sheep Research Manager, providing additional leadership.   January 30th is right in the middle of the OARDC winter lambing season so we should have many “hands-on” opportunities for docking tails, castrating, tubing, etc.   Session II is limited to only 25 participants and each must have attended Session I.    These 25 participants must come dressed to work in the barn.   Please remember to wear clean work clothes & footwear to minimize cross contamination.

Cost for Session I is $5 for Heartland members, $5 for students, $10 non-members, or $25 per family.   Cost for Session II is a flat rate of $10 per person.

Registration is required no later than Thursday January 28th – so register early!   Contact Suzie Gortner, OHSIA S/T, at 419.869.7353 or skg2ewe@verizon.net.    If you need more information, contact Suzie or Kathy Bielek, OHSIA president, at 330.264.5281 bielek@bright.net.
