Sheep Wrestling- Chelsea Freeman

I worked some in the office this week preparing for the BCIA bull sale. We finished up catalogs for the day of the sale and also gathered supplies for it. The highlight of my week though, was being out at the South Farm filming sheep management videos. We filmed CIDR insertion, “rumping”, breeding crayon, and de-worm plunger videos. Rumping is where one can put a sheep on it’s rear end in order to better handle it for various management practices. I learned how to do this my freshman year at State, but to MUCH smaller sheep than those that are at the the physiology unit currently. Needless to say, I had a hard time demonstrating sheep rumping and whoever gets the bloopers of those videos is in for a good laugh!!
