PIPESTONE — The Pipestone Lamb and Wool Program Lambing Time Short Course and Bus Tour is planned Feb. 4-5, in Pipestone.

The program begins with a Friday evening discussion from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. Saturday’s events will begin at 8 a.m. with lambing time management and health topics. The afternoon will be spent touring and viewing two successful sheep operations. The program will conclude by 5 p.m. Saturday.

The short course and bus tour are to help producers recognize and effectively deal with common lambing time problems. Dr. Goelz will share his thoughts on common lamb and ewe health problems. Touring two area sheep operations will provide an opportunity for individuals to see how other sheep producers recognize and deal with lambing time problems. Attendees will see how they lay out their lambing barn, set up creep pens, graft lambs, dock, vaccinate, feed and manage lambs and ewes.
