    I would think the department of primary industries would help you find a suitable vet and information about raising sheep.

    similar to buying things like fencing at reasonable cost.. i don't know where you are, but get away from urban / fancy / horsey areas and drop in at a good rural produce store.
    They would be selling something non-organic though.. there are standard drenches available. I'll be looking into it when I finally get my fences happening

    Horses get Bighead to, it is caused by Kikuya grass if they are not supplimented when they are growing.

    Donbear that is what I was looking for, the man which told me about the vaccines who I can't get hold of now, said the name and I forgot.. 6 in 1 it was.. So now to find a supplier..

    Thank you for this, cause I had no idea when to give it to them either.

    What is better for the coast... 6 in 1 or 7 in 1?

    photosensitization can also cause wool to fall off ears nose etc
    caused by several varietys of plant summer growing usually
    a rapid change in diet which you described will cause wool to break other forms of stress ie fly strike,worms etc will also cause this phenomenen
    haemonchus contortus (barbers pole can kill rapidly)
    grow some artemesia (wormwood)
    wrere are ya shimmer (what climatic zone)

    Lamb vaccinations sheep management

    Right now sheep should be tanking up on fall fescues and such and probably wont want much hay unless this is not available. Post a pic of your new lamb? Id love to see a pic of a Royal White.

    Baaaa Andrew,

    I am East of Brisbane in the Bayside. What is wormwood, is this safe for horses? Yes she got stuck into the foals dinner a couple of times so this may have caused it. We don't have a big fly problem, I hate fly's so am an avid fly baiter, swatter :)

    Immago what is fall fescues ? My sheep are standing up to their ears in green grass, even the horses don't get hay at the moment :)

    Oh wow I am going to go to these gardens:) Where in Brisvegas are they?

    Holey moley, haha go the names of them.. Do they all do the same thing, or do they have individual properties? I was really interested that I could use them as bug repellent, that would be great to spray on my animals and a better and cheaper alternative to what I use now.

    they are on northey street, windsor.
    Actually, I just dropped in over lunch, the very nice lady there, didn't have any potted up, but happily gave me some cuttings! Go northey street city farm! I promised to pass on cuttings to others when mine grows :)
