My breeding plan says that I should drench and heptoval 4 weeks before lambing - agreed? Any thing else I should be doing that I might have missed?

What are you drenching with?

I Heptavac P Plus 4 weeks before lambing; I also take the opportunity to have a wee check of feet and condition.

will have to check and post tomorrow. I'm guessing you aren't turning the ewes to check the feet

No, I do them like the farrier does horses feet. I always do them like that.

Hello you are correct dosing pre-lambing , my only thought is do you need to dose for fluke and worms this is what fasimec duo is for ?

we don't have a fluke problem and we are not on wet ground but that is what I have in stock. Any reason not to use it?

Look up www.NOAH.co.uk and the Compendium section. This lists all medicines and stuff for animals with dosage rates, contr-indications, withdrawal periods etc etc. I find it very useful.
