The Breeding Flock


'The Breeding Flock' describes every stage of the breeding year and discusses how the enlightened flock keeper can manage breeding in a way that can reduce both lamb and ewe problems, and minimise human intervention. Including advice and demonstrations from specialist vets and sheep experts, this DVD will help you to understand the increased welfare needs of a breeding flock, and how to create a plan that will guide you throughout the year.

Presented by Adam Henson.
