The presentation will focus on the cost-effective relationship between organic methods and problem prevention.
- techniques to strengthen the sheep immune system
- control of parasites
- lambing assistance
- the judicious use anti-biotics
- veterinary intervention
- an underlying theme is the humane treatment of sheep
From birth to transportation to the abattoir, the balance between animal-care costs and humane treatment needs to be clearly articulated.
This workshop will be of interest to small and large sheep producers as well as non-farmers interested in organic food and fibre production.
