Summer Mornings on Solace Farm

Just thought I would share my morning …

…I am sitting in the warmth of the morning sun on my porch swing watching the dew drops glisten like stars on the vibrant green grass. A gentle breeze causes the verdant stalks to tremble every now and then as though shimmering in the ecstasy of birdsong that fills the air. It is these quiet moments that make the days glide by in spite of the hours of weeding and haying.

Life is good.

Integrated Parasite Management Strategies for Sheep Producers

Webinar to Address Parasite Management   is the topic for the next American Sheep Industry Association-sponsored webinar. Dr. Andrew Weaver of North Carolina State University will lead the webinar on Tuesday at 8 p.m. eastern time.    “Parasites continue to be a significant challenge for sheep production across the country. The failure of dewormers to adequately treat parasite infections has resulted in the need for alternative parasite management strategies. Unfortunately, there is no single cure. Rather, an integrated approach is needed where multiple strategies are implemented for effective parasite control,” reads the webinar description.   “These strategies can include environment-based approaches as well as animal-based approaches. In this webinar, parasite biology and host-parasite interactions will be highlighted to provide context for parasite management. Discussion will follow on various parasite management strategies available and how they can be implemented in a sheep production system. A multifaceted approach to parasite management will be most successful in mitigating infection levels and improving sheep performance and well-being.”

Sheep & Goat Handling System

So after wrangling sheep for nearly 30 years with the skill of a good Border Collie and the muscle of my sons, I decided to invest in a Sheep handling system to make the process a little less labor intensive. 

I did lots of research and talked to many shepherds and finally picked the system for me.  I am so excited to have my new Lakeland SG100 arriving next week!!!  This system includes:

Qty 1 –  (Working Chute and Crowding Tub w/ anti back-up gate and guillotine gate)

Qty 1 –  (Deluxe Spin Trim Chute w/ tires and hitch)

Stay tuned to see how we set it up and use it here on Solace Farm.  My Pa always said to work smarter not harder.
