Most susceptible to scrapies
We are a closed Ovine Progressive Pneumonia (OPP) and foot rot free flock. We introduce new genetics through rams that are tested and isolated before being brought into the flock. 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) for their lambs 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.
