Vaccination

Vaccinating against Orf

All lambs are vaccinated against Orf shortly after they are born. Orf is a virulent disease that produces sores around the mouth that prevents them suckling.

Vaccination is carried out by scratching the skin of the lamb on its underside using a special needle.
