In Wicklow, lambing is in full swing at the moment. Generally, things are going well with the occasional problem. With lambing indoors however there are a number of issues we do come across or are regularly asked about. I’d like to cover some of the management practices that might aid reducing these problems. The top three we usually see are:

  • Watery mouth
  • Navel infections
  • Joint ill
  • These are of course infectious problems and require specific treatments however, I am much more concerned about reducing their incidences.
