The Small Farms Network Capital Region recently ran a webinar and discussion about ideas for sheep handling on small farms. The scale of small farm operations means that sheep owners need to find cost-effective, practical solutions for everyday sheep handling tasks that larger farming operations take for granted. Sometimes these solutions can be slower to carry out but when there are only a few sheep, this is not necessarily a problem.
The webinar was presented by Jennie Curtis from Roogulli Farm, who also produced a 10 minute video on small scale sheep handling and feeding. There were ideas about yard setup, weighing sheep, tipping sheep and feeding out.
A summary of the webinar is available on the Small Farms Network Capital Region website, and you can view the video below.
