So this year I will be ready, here  are some of the things I like to keep on hand.

  1. Rubber gloves
  2. OB lube
  3. Leg puller
  4. Pen G any ewe that needs help gets a shot
  5. Needles and syringes
  6. Digital Thermometer
  7. Iodine
  8. Powdered Colostrum and Lamb milk replacer
  9. Nipples
  10. Propylene for Pregnancy Toxemia
