Duration: 2.5 hours
Sheep are herd animals, so it is much easier to deal with them as a group than as individuals. When you need to treat an individual animal, it is much easier to bring the whole flock into the handling pens and pick the ailing sheep out rather than try to catch one animal in the camp. In this course, you will learn about the techniques used in the management of a commercial flock of sheep. Includes material on necessary facilities, regular care routines and their use, and general husbandry tasks.
