I hope you get better before you start lambing. There nothing worse than being a couple of weeks away then them start slipping, I know the feeling to well, it’s good to get the vet to test.

monday 🤦🏻‍♂️ got one of the lambs going last night but came back a hour later and it was dead... all vaxxed for enzo 4 weeks pretupping which about broke my heart the cost and still getting abortion 🤬
3 years ago I had 8 abort out of 200 or so and they had been vaccinated for both so I can feel your pain, but its that feeling when walking through them that got to me. Vet sent some afterbirth away and it came back clear for everything, fingers crossed that it sorts itself sooner rather than later

I'd be going through them with alamycin asap to stop it in its tracks now before it could get worse
If they are due on Monday and they are due to lamb tight I would probably just ride it out another week will see it mostly past if they are quite a spread lambing I would consider blanket jagging good luck either way
Am I not correct in thinking any ewe that had picked up enzo at lambing last year your vaccination would do her no good already infected but they will be ok next year on ?

vet coming first thing but said he’s bringing enough alamycin with him too inject everything because chances are its what i need

300 due to lamb in 3 weeks so it is a tight lambing but only scanned 154% once barrens were taken off so every loss is felt
My dad lost 800 lambs in 2012 to toxo. We almost lost him as well, iv never known any thing like it! The worst bit was the half live lambs that you spend ages on, then they die.
you’d find me swinging from the shed doorway if that happened to be honest that would break me...

Written by William Kellett from Agriland

A man has pleaded guilty at Newtownards Magistrates’ Court to waste offences relating to a bonfire next to the electrical sub-station on the Circular Road in Newtownards, Co. Down.

Gareth Gill (51) of Abbot’s Walk, Newtownards pleaded guilty to two charges under the Waste and Contaminated Land (Northern Ireland) Order 1997, for which he was fined £150 each and ordered to pay a £15 offender’s levy

On June 25, 2018, PSNI officers went to Gill’s yard, where they found a large amount of waste consisting of scrap wood, pallets, carpet and underlay.
