All breeders must record the lambing information before April 30th.
In order for any animal to retrieve Eurostar’s this year, breeders are required by Sheep Ireland as well as the majority of 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 almost 40,000 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 (Android) or App Store (Iphone).

Sheep Ireland provides 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, and saved on your own computer for printing. It is a very useful report that breeders should make use of when looking closely at particular lambing seasons as the year can be changed.
LambPlus farmers who are experiencing any difficulties in recording their information are encouraged to contact Sheep Ireland on 023 882 0451, any issues experienced prior to the deadline should be rectified before it is too late.
