After lambing, one of the biggest challenges for shepherds is often orf which can cause problems with both the lambs and the ewes. Orf can cause the udder to become infected as well as causing a reduced growth rate in lambs by up to 10%.
How IMUORF can help with orf on sheep?
IMUORF can be used to support the adult sheep and lamb’s own immune system to fight challenges from orf. It is a blend of natural extracts and organic compounds that help support adult sheep and lambs where there are challenges from orf. There is no withdrawal period and it is a liquid so it is easy to administer. IMUORF has been on the market for five years and feedback from sheep farmers is very positive.
How to use IMUORF
IMUORF should be added to feed or water or given by mouth. The amount is 5ml per animal as a preventative measure. For extra support, IMUORF can be given to individual animals for three to five days
Orf Case Study
A few years ago, a County Antrim sheep farmer had dreadful problems with orf in his 100 ewes. Many lambs had painful sores around their mouths and many ewes had developed orf on their udders. Some ewes even had mastitis too as a result.
The following year, the farmer decided to try Imuorf to prevent a reoccurrence of the disastrous lambing season which had occurred the previous year. He gave Imuorf to every lamb after it was born and he has absolutely no problems with orf that year, both the lambs and the ewes.
He has now used Imuorf for three successive lambing seasons and thankfully he has had no further outbreaks of orf.
