Health Program

We are a closed flock that is Ovine Progressive Pneumonia (OPP) and foot rot free. We introduce new genetics through AI.  We prefer to only use RR rams, but occasionally we have used QR rams to diversify our genetics. 

Our ewes are dewormed in the spring and fall and given a booster of C&D (overeating) at shearing. Lambs are vaccinated at four weeks and again at weaning with C&D. Otherwise true to our goals, we support a low maintenance and hearty flock.
