It is also important to keep an eye on your dogs weight to ensure the correct dosage. All dog owners are always welcome to call into the Vets and use our scales, but we do ask that you phone first to let us know you are coming.
| Standard Shearing
November 1st - February 28th
| Cover Combs
September 15th - October 31st
March 1st - March 31st
No shearing is allowed in April except for sheep going for immediate slaughter or small numbers of "straggler" sheep. In the case of the latter the farmer should first contact the Veterinary Service to give notice of his intention to shear such sheep. All sheep shorn in April must be shorn using cover combs.
Please note: The only shearing permitted outside the ruled shearing dates will be of animals which are slaughtered off the shears. The slaughter should take place within 2 hours if the animals are not penned in the building and in any case not later than 24 hours post shearing.
