Sheep husbandry day was on Feb. 12. It was held at the Smith’s in their barn. This is an event where the sheep 4-H members learn how to properly take care of a lamb. First the members were taught how to dock a lamb’s tail, followed by Mr. Greg Smith, Mrs. Maureen Smith and Sara-Kate Smith going over the steps on how to successfully grow a show lamb.
There were four different stations where 4-H members were able to learn by doing various husbandry practices that they will need to know. One was to give injections, another station taught members how to make a halter out of rope. They also learned how to judge a sheep and what kinds of grain to feed their animals.
All the members who attended learned a great deal and are now ready to take good care of their projects. Thank you to the Smith family for hosting this event.
