Veterinary Considerations in your Sheep Flock

 

BasicsofGoodSheepManagement 211x300 Veterinary Considerations in your Sheep Flock

Through out the year, there are many veterinary operations that have to be considered in your sheep operation. These do vary according to your geographic locality. As I mention in our Sheep Management video, one of the most important issues for any new sheep producer, is to find a local veterinarian who is interested in sheep production and able in giving good and sound advice.
