Management of Ewes and Lambs at Weaning
Separation at weaning can be stressful for both lambs and the ewe. Management goals should be to
keep this stress as low as possible, thereby reducing incidence of disease and health problems in
ewes and lambs and allowing the lambs to grow at a normal rate.

Something's Been Killing My Sheep - But What?
The purpose of this factsheet is to aid producers and livestock evaluators in distinguishing
between losses caused by predators and non-predator causes. If predation is the cause of death then
it is particularly important to identify the species responsible so additional control measures can
be implemented to minimize future losses. Heavy emphasis is placed on distinguishing between coyote
predation and dog predation, since they collectively account for almost all predator related losses
in Ontario flocks.

Livestock Guard Dogs, Llamas and Donkeys
Guard dogs are an effective method to reduce predation on livestock. Guard llamas and donkeys also
appear to reduce losses but appear less effective than guard dogs. Guard dogs can be used in farm
flock/pasture operations, on open range, and in feedlots. Llamas and donkeys are most effective in
fenced pastures less than 300 acres.
