“ A review paper on neonatal survival in small ruminants was recently published in the journal ‘Animal’, after the new EAAP working group on Lamb and kid survival held it’s first ‘Challenge’ session in Copenhagen. The active working group, led by Jean-Marc Gautier and Cathy Dwyer are holding another session at EAAP in Belfast this year 2016 (29 Aug – 2 Sept) where invited speakers from around the globe will explore ways to reduce lamb and kid mortality in extensive and intensively reared sheep systems. Specifically, it will address genetic and phenotypic approaches to improving lamb and kid mortality, and address ways to standardise recording of perinatal survival for indoor and outdoor lambing. Issues around improving data quality, tools to record lamb and kid survival and ways to do this will be considered, as will small ruminant mortality before, during and after birth and including abortion and stillbirth.
