Prolapses

Ok so 18 days off lambing and had 2 prolapsed , they are fine but it’s a right faff to get them off the far fields , some say they remove all silage as soon as the first ewe prolapse, possibly go into blocks , any advice ?

Housed lambing here, only singles and ewe lambs get ad-lib hay, twins and triplets are restricted.

Ewes would naturally be on short grass at lambing and overindulgence wouldn't be that common.
how does that work, do you literally put like a 250kg bale for so many ewes over a set time period?

We have tried all sorts some years thinking we’ve cracked it but this year they have made up for any gains in other years.Happened to mention to a sales rep about it and he suggested trying those red lick buckets,reconned the urea in them would break down the silage in the rumen faster. So far it has worked in the 4 pens I’ve put them in,and they must be good because I haven’t had any in the other pens either since.

Is that crystalyx as ours always get them and doesn’t make any difference

I think the damage is done mid pregnancy when they put condition on instead of loosing a bit. Mine are on restricted hay and just 600g ewe nuts spread over three feeds. Fine balance between twin lamb disease and prolapses at this stage. But hey, at least the weather's improved and we can turn out!

I think it’s more to do with what condition they were in at early pregnancy. Personally I think it would be foolish to cut the feeding down now I doubt it will make any difference and probably make more problems of other sorts ie lack of milk and twin lamb

That was my thinking. We never seem to get mules doing it, at least not early.

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.
