Don’t forgot to record your lambing information on the Sheep Ireland database. In order your any animal to retrieve Eurostar’s this year, breeders are required by Sheep Ireland as well as their respective breed societies to register lamb births before 30th April. Any animals recorded after this date will not receive Eurostar’s this year. Currently there are over 16,000 lambs recorded on the Sheep Ireland database. Recording lambing has never been so quick and easy with the Sheep Ireland App available for download on Playstore (Andoriods) or App Store (Iphone).

Breeders who are experiencing any difficulties in recording their information are encouraged to contact Sheep Ireland, any issues experienced prior to the deadline should be rectified before it is too late.
Sheep Ireland provide Lambing Reports to all LambPlus breeders based on the lambing information submitted. This report gives a summary of your lambing season – number of lambs born (of which are singles or multiples), breakdown of mortality, lambing difficulty and birth weights. This report can be downloaded into an excel file (commonly .xlsx (MS Office 2007), once the excel generates, the report can be saved on your own computer for printing. This is a very useful report that breeders should make use of when looking closely at particular lambing seasons as the year can be changed.
