Any other people with a small flock in East Dorset?
« on: April 08, 2015, 11:16:54 am »
Hi I have a small flock ( 3 ewes and a ram!)

I often find I have to buy wormers and pour on in quantities far larger than I need, and wondered if anyone else had the same problem and wanted to split with me so to speak?

Just a thought....... :wave:

Hi ! I'm north Dorset and have a small flock, not as small as yours but a total with the ram and his friend, 15 although five at least shouldn't be here !! I get FEC done and my vet dispenses the amount of wormer needed. That doesn't help with heptovac although a near neighbour and I share.Had a word with your vet ,they may be able to help or put you in touch with another small flock with their permission of course.  :wave:

 :wave: We are 15 miles west of Dorchester.  Might be able to do a share if that is not too far from you.  You can pm me your location if you prefer.  Also the staff at Kingston Maurward College may be able to put you in touch with smallholders nearer you, they do a lot of sheep courses.

Fab, thank you for your replies. I am about to get my lambs done for first dose of heptavacP - the soonest I can do it is in 10 days and I have a 10 day window - it would be good to find someone to use some of it  :) as I only need 8 of the 25 doses.
