Developed by New Zealand sheep farmer, Mr David Brown, in the early 1990s, Woolover all-wool lamb covers have saved hundreds of thousands of lambs around the world. Woolovers are now manufactured in Australia. For management reasons lambing is most often carried out at a time of the year subject to adverse conditions, putting survival of many lambs ?at risk. There is no doubt that fitting a Woolover cover as soon as possible after birth can turn losses into profits. Lamb mortality can be dramatically reduced. Not only are survival rates increased, but trials have proven lambs in Woolover covers gain 2/3 of a kg more weight in their first three weeks compared to uncovered lambs. The reduced feed demand on the ewe ensures she does better too. Woolover covers should be applied to all lambs under 4 days old when a storm is imminent. Covers can reduce losses from 60% or more to almost none, within this group. It is recommended that covers are left in place for up to 3 weeks (remove at docking time) to get maximum benefit, but if there is substantial improvement in the weather, covers can be removed and re-used for greatest economy. Woolover covers can be applied in about 30 seconds. The tail end is rolled forward and the lamb’s front legs, and then head, are inserted through the front holes (just like putting on a jersey). The tail end is then unrolled and the rear legs pulled through the holes. Care should then be taken to pull the cover up all the legs so it is snug against the lamb’s body. Survival is then assured in even very bad weather conditions. Woolover covers can be washed and re-used if removed after 3-4 days. Covers should not be left on lambs for longer than 3 weeks, except for exceptionally small lambs.

Our ewes started lambing 2 weeks early and we hadn't got our supplies ready. I called on Saturday afternoon and got a call back within an hour. Express freighted upon request and delivery was very prompt. Have been using lamb covers for over 7 years, with great results. (Posted on 29/06/2015)

LAMB WOOLOVER Review by evewebb2073@gmail.com
Value
I love the design and quality and design of the lamb woolover which is part of my poddy lamb induction kit. My poddy lamb induction kit also includes D-Scour, lamb wormer, bottle, teats, cod liver oil, and lamb formula. Everything I need is available at The Farm Store and fast delivery is great when living out in the country where getting to the shops is not convenient. (Posted on 23/06/2015)

I am a small holder of sheep and lost some lambs due to bad weather. When I heard of these, I went and purchased some straight away. I believe this is a fantastic way of ensuring survival of precious stock. Great idea, great product. (Posted on 1/06/2015)
