Extension Webinar: Preparing for Lambing and Kidding Season
New York Ag Connection - 01/21/2022

University of Minnesota Extension will host a webinar on Jan. 25 from 6:30 to 8 p.m. on how to prepare for the lambing and kidding season to get small ruminant animals off to a good start in life and keep them growing strong. Farmers, 4-Hers, ag business professionals who work with farmers, and those interested in goats or sheep are invited to attend.

Sheep and Goat production in 2022 begins with tremendous optimism and record or near-record lamb and goat prices. Producers are in the midst of lambing and kidding. This webinar will focus on young lamb/kid management. The time of birth to weaning requires attention to detail, husbandry skills, and emphasis on health and nutrition.

Kyle Rozeboom, UMN Department of Animal Science Instructor, will provide guidance for small ruminant lamb/kid birthing, beginning rations, and overall lamb and kid health. Emma Severns, Extension educator will walk through a "tool kit" of items to have on hand for lambing and kidding birthing. They look forward to providing insight and the opportunity for dialogue among producers so that we may build a successful and prosperous sheep and goat crop in 2022.
