sheep scouring
« on: July 31, 2016, 03:45:47 pm »
 I was wondering and what I can do to stop my sheep scouring, they have started again for the second time this year. We have taken samples to the vet and they said there is nothing wrong with the animals and that there is just too much grass. Will these lambs eventually stop scouring and is there anything I can do to stop them. I have no field with worse grass and there is just too much compared to earlier in the year when we had to buy in bales of hay.
