A focus on flock performance at breeding time
This week I did a webinar on sheep performance coming up to breeding with Rumenco and ACT.
I focused on how I assess different risk areas in our flocks at this time of year.
In the video below, I quickly look at some of these risks that we covered in the webinar.
- What are our KPIs for the farm? Where are the goalposts, progress over perfection?
- Nutrition and minerals
- Focus on ram health
- Abortion control
- Parasite control
- Controlling lameness
- Iceberg diseases
- Vaccines and hormone treatments
A focus on your team and what’s the risks on your farm. What areas need improving. By identifying these we can improve health and flock performance.
Remember its often about progress over perfection.
Happy safe farming
