|Comment||Hey there - they have survived, but still get bloat daily. Basically, we let them out because nothing we seemed to do made any difference, so it was a "sink or swim" moment for them. They still waddle around by the end of the day HUGE, but not to the point where I am afraid they will pop - they were at that point when I wrote the first time there. So, they are in pasture eating grass now, and it varies throughout the day. We have decided not to do anything else for them for the bloat as nothing made a difference. Thanks again!!!|
I can answer most questions about raising, breeding, feeding, showing,typical illnesses, pregnancy, birthing, bottle feeding,showing and sheering sheep. I have raised sheep for show and production for 20 years. The breeds of sheep I am most familier with are Crossbred, Suffolk, Hampshire- basically black face sheep. I deal with the classification of meat sheep over bred for wool sheep.
I have raised a flock of sheep for 20 years on our farm. Very involved in 4H, FFA aspects and their rules, jackpot shows, state, regional, county and local shows.
Experience is my best creditial however, I have a college education and have taught many classes ( in other catagories), so I am familiar in the ways of teaching others.
Awards and Honors
Many breed awards- champion and grand champion awards in Kansas for the past 20 years, showmanship awards at local and state level in Kansas.
