Keeping your sheep healthy! We meet Beatrice .. In this morning's everything animals.

40} EVERYTHINGANIMALS_PKG


TD: In Everything Animals this morning, we are talking sheep. This is Beatrice - and we're also joined by Dr. Alison Cornwall. Thanks for being here. So, what are some things we need to know about sheep? AC: Well, this is a border lester romney cross. She has beautiful, nice crimpt fiber that you can see here. She's a little on the chunky side. But, sheep really like to be chunky. We've had sheep in Vermont for a really long time. In fact, in the mid-1800's, in the height of the wool industry, had over a million sheep in vermont. And for context, we have about 250,000 cows right now. So, a lot of sheep. It's been a very famous industry. TD: And this sheep seems to be pretty warm for the winter? AC: She is not hurting. She's got this lovely coat on in there. And that's a great point. This wall have to be shorn. So, a lot of people will- if they have pet sheep - they'll sheer them for the summer so they can be cool in the summertime. But, if the sheep are bred, one of the things that we'll do is that we'll actually sheer them in the coldest part of the year before they have their babies. That'll encourage them to eat. So, that they don't get into troubles from not eating when they're pregnant and have such a big metabolic draw from those fetuses. TD: And you were telling me that there's actually a U.S. president who had sheep at the White House? AC: Yes. Woodrow Wilson used to house sheep - he had about 40 head on the White House lawn during World War One. They would sell the wool - auction it off- and give the money to the Red Cross. And then they had fewer maintenance costs for keeping the lawn tidy because the sheep would keep their lawn nipped. TD: We're heading into spring, hard to believe already, some things we want to watch out for - sometimes it's cold, sometimes it's warming up. Anything we want to be paying attention to? AC: Well, as the flies start to come out - as these sheep have their fleeces, sometimes they want to have troubles with getting this really moist fleece, because this wool is going to hold a lot of water. As we start to get into the wet, muddy season - and so something that you have to be careful of is to make sure that they're not getting skin infections or problems from flies with that wet wool. And then just making sure that they've made it through the winter okay. This one is just kind of like a loveseat sofa. She's just fine. But you want to feel them and make sure. Get your hands on them. Because you can't tell through the wool whether or not they're fat or thin. TD: And what about food? AC: They also eat hay, pretty much like all livestock do. They're going to need high quality hay, salt and water. One of the common thigns that we see is problems with copper. Either too much or too little copper is a common issue. So, getting the minerals right can be really important for owners. That's something that we worry about and that owners sometimes don't know - if you have things like horse feeds or cow feeds or pig feeds - those things are really high in copper and they can really hurt sheep. TD: Alright. Dr. Alison Corwall, thanks for joining us - Beatrice as well. We appreciate it! And that's Everything Animals.

Keeping your sheep healthy! We meet Beatrice .. In this morning's everything animals.

44} EVERYTHINGANIMALS_PKG


TD: In Everything Animals this morning, we are talking sheep. This is Beatrice - and we're also joined by Dr. Alison Cornwall. Thanks for being here. So, what are some things we need to know about sheep? AC: Well, this is a border lester romney cross. She has beautiful, nice crimpt fiber that you can see here. She's a little on the chunky side. But, sheep really like to be chunky. We've had sheep in Vermont for a really long time. In fact, in the mid-1800's, in the height of the wool industry, had over a million sheep in vermont. And for context, we have about 250,000 cows right now. So, a lot of sheep. It's been a very famous industry. TD: And this sheep seems to be pretty warm for the winter? AC: She is not hurting. She's got this lovely coat on in there. And that's a great point. This wall have to be shorn. So, a lot of people will- if they have pet sheep - they'll sheer them for the summer so they can be cool in the summertime. But, if the sheep are bred, one of the things that we'll do is that we'll actually sheer them in the coldest part of the year before they have their babies. That'll encourage them to eat. So, that they don't get into troubles from not eating when they're pregnant and have such a big metabolic draw from those fetuses. TD: And you were telling me that there's actually a U.S. president who had sheep at the White House? AC: Yes. Woodrow Wilson used to house sheep - he had about 40 head on the White House lawn during World War One. They would sell the wool - auction it off- and give the money to the Red Cross. And then they had fewer maintenance costs for keeping the lawn tidy because the sheep would keep their lawn nipped. TD: We're heading into spring, hard to believe already, some things we want to watch out for - sometimes it's cold, sometimes it's warming up. Anything we want to be paying attention to? AC: Well, as the flies start to come out - as these sheep have their fleeces, sometimes they want to have troubles with getting this really moist fleece, because this wool is going to hold a lot of water. As we start to get into the wet, muddy season - and so something that you have to be careful of is to make sure that they're not getting skin infections or problems from flies with that wet wool. And then just making sure that they've made it through the winter okay. This one is just kind of like a loveseat sofa. She's just fine. But you want to feel them and make sure. Get your hands on them. Because you can't tell through the wool whether or not they're fat or thin. TD: And what about food? AC: They also eat hay, pretty much like all livestock do. They're going to need high quality hay, salt and water. One of the common thigns that we see is problems with copper. Either too much or too little copper is a common issue. So, getting the minerals right can be really important for owners. That's something that we worry about and that owners sometimes don't know - if you have things like horse feeds or cow feeds or pig feeds - those things are really high in copper and they can really hurt sheep. TD: Alright. Dr. Alison Corwall, thanks for joining us - Beatrice as well. We appreciate it! And that's Everything Animals.

She made several huge stops as Middlebury made their run. --- They would take their first lead in 20 minutes when Emma McDonagh finds Alli Sciarretta, the ball and stick both leaping on the bounce --- Mary O'Connell to Megan Griffin, that's 5-straight for the Panthers to make it 7-4 --- Then Griffin dishing out a couple of assists to Laurel Pascal!
