Mother's Sheep Cradle
A simple but effective way to force ewes to mother orphan lambs was introduced at the Fieldays by Anlift Marketing, Matamata, New Zealand, manufacturer of the Anlift cowlifter that's become popular in the U.S. and Canada for handling down cows.
The new sheep cradle consists of a lightweight tubular metal frame with a canvas cradle across the center. The animal is lifted into the cradle, which is then strapped down over its back. Held at a level where its feet just touch the ground, the animal can't move away when presented with a nursing lamb. When not in use, the cradle folds up for easy storage. Sells for about $40.
