Parents/students with show animals please take a look at the weather for thus week. It was a beautiful weekend but that isn’t going to last. Please make sure pigs have extra straw/shavings to bed down in. If you use a heat lamp please make sure it is secure. Lambs and goats MUST have blankets on. We do not want our animals using energy to keep warm and in the process burn what fat they have put on. Again, remember safety precautions with heat lambs... secure them well so we do not have any barn fires. Do not forget the importance of water. Offer warm water if you can to keep them hydrated.
