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.
