Build Resilience with Cull

If you have sheep that present as lame twice despite appropriate treatment then they should be given a cull tag to help prevent the cycle of infection and remove any genetic predispositions to misshapen feet which can be prone to lameness.

Culling will be high in the first year but will reduce dramatically as you progress.

Ask yourself the questions below. If you answer ‘no’ to more than three of them, consider increasing your focus on culling.
