Babies And Kids

March was filled with more births! We had 6 Lincoln lambs born, which is a record for us. All of our moms delivered unassisted a total of 4 girls (ewes) and 2 boys. One of the ewes was born with weak back legs. She experienced difficulty standing on her own. We assisted her with some tape on the back legs and with in 24 hours she was better. You would never know which one she is if you saw her now.

4-H sheep and goats spent the month helping with the vaccination and care of the new lambs. April is the beginning of the market animal project. We have 4 kids raising lambs and 7 kids raising goats. These members as well at their families take the responsibility of feeding the animals as well as all the care. It’s a project that requires teamwork to be successful.
