Flock Health

A flock health plan is ideally started at the beginning of your sheep year, approximately 6 to 8 weeks before tupping - this will obviously vary between flocks depending on your chosen lambing date.  The plan should be a working document that evolves as your farm evolves and is never completed merely added to or amended as issues arise.

The main areas to cover are:-

  • Biosecurity
  • Standard operating procedures
  • Assessment of flock performance using your records
  • Nutrition
  • Health and preventative medicine
