If you are going to be in Corvallis this February the public has an opportunity to observe this year’s lambing season at the OSU Sheep Center. There are currently 250 ewes expecting and the center is hoping to see about 400 lambs join the OSU family. The visits will begin on February 20th until March 14th from 9am to 2pm. But it will be closed on Thursdays and Fridays for class.
The ewes and lambs are part of ongoing research studies in animal health, breeding, feeding and grazing management conducted by the OSU Agricultural Experiment Station. The animals are used also in instructional programs in the OSU Animal Sciences Department and the OSU College of Veterinary Medicine
Each year the Sheep Center draws thousands of children and adults for the lambing event. This is a great opportunity to cure some of the winter blues and look forward for the spring time ahead. For more information on visiting the Oregon State University Sheep Center click on the link below.
