    When feeding sheep, a lamb needing to gain weight should be fed what?

    • A.

      A diet high in protein

    • B.

      A diet high in fiber

    • C.

      A diet high in energy

    • D.

      Rolled oats

    Correct Answer
    C. A diet high in energy
    Explanation
    A lamb needing to gain weight should be fed a diet high in energy because energy-dense foods provide the necessary calories to support weight gain. Protein is important for muscle development, but a high-protein diet alone may not provide enough calories for weight gain. Fiber is important for digestion but does not contribute significantly to weight gain. Rolled oats can be a part of a high-energy diet, but it is not the only factor to consider.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    The average daily gain for a lambs is:

    • A.

      .5-.75 lbs. per day

    • B.

      1-2 lbs. per day

    • C.

      .25-.5 lbs. per day

    • D.

      2-3 lbs. per day

    Correct Answer
    A. .5-.75 lbs. per day
    Explanation
    The correct answer is .5-.75 lbs. per day. This range indicates the average daily weight gain for lambs. It suggests that on average, lambs gain between half a pound and three-quarters of a pound per day.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    The proper feed conversion when feeding sheep is:

    • A.

      2lbs feed: 1 lb. gain

    • B.

      3lbs. feed: 1 lb. gain

    • C.

      4lbs. feed: 1

    • D.

      5lbs. feed: 1 lb. gain

    Correct Answer
    D. 5lbs. feed: 1 lb. gain
    Explanation
    The proper feed conversion when feeding sheep is 5lbs of feed to gain 1 lb. This means that for every 5lbs of feed given to the sheep, they will gain 1 lb of weight. This ratio indicates the efficiency of feed utilization by the sheep, with a lower feed conversion ratio indicating better efficiency.

    Market lambs being shown at our fair are most likely born in what month?

    • A.

      Jan.-Feb.

    • B.

      March-April

      Nov.-Dec

    • D.

      Oct.

    Correct Answer
    A. Jan.-Feb.
    Explanation
    Market lambs being shown at the fair are most likely born in January or February. This is because market lambs are typically shown when they are around 6-9 months old, which means they would have been born in the earlier months of the year. Lambs born in January or February have enough time to grow and develop before being shown at the fair later in the year.

The question is asking for the specific components of a uniform that must be worn at a fair. The uniform includes white pants and a white collared shirt, which are the clothing items required for the lower half and upper half of the body.

    True or False, you must wear boots and a belt with your uniform when showing an animal?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    When showing an animal, it is important to wear boots and a belt with your uniform for safety and practical reasons. Boots provide protection for your feet in case of any accidental stepping on or kicking by the animal. A belt helps to keep your clothing secure and prevents any loose fabric from getting caught or entangled with the animal. Therefore, it is necessary to wear boots and a belt to ensure a safe and professional presentation while showing an animal.

    The normal temperature range of sheep is:

    • A.

      100-103

    • B.

      99-104

    • C.

      103-105

    • D.

      105-107

    Correct Answer
    A. 100-103
    Explanation
    Sheep have a normal temperature range of 100-103 degrees Fahrenheit. This range is considered normal for sheep and indicates that their body temperature is within a healthy range. Temperatures below or above this range may indicate illness or other health issues. It is important for sheep owners to monitor their temperature regularly to ensure their well-being.

    If my lamb weighed 80 lbs when I received him on May 1st and I had 80 days until fair for my lamb to reach my goal weight of 145 lbs. (max pay wt), what would the avg daily gain need to be for my lamb?

    • A.

      1 lb/day

    • B.

      .75lbs/day

    • C.

      .80lbs/day

    • D.

      1.2lbs/day

    Correct Answer
    C. .80lbs/day
    Explanation
    To calculate the average daily gain for the lamb, we need to find the difference between the goal weight and the initial weight, which is 145 lbs - 80 lbs = 65 lbs. Then, we divide this difference by the number of days until the fair, which is 80 days. Therefore, the average daily gain needed for the lamb would be 65 lbs / 80 days = 0.8125 lbs/day. Rounded to two decimal places, this is approximately 0.80 lbs/day, which matches the given answer.

    What is the first thing that you do if you have a sick lamb?

    • A.

      Call your teacher

    • B.

      Call the vet

    • C.

      Take its temperature

    • D.

      Ask a friend

    Correct Answer
    C. Take its temperature
    Explanation
    Taking the temperature of a sick lamb is the first thing to do because it can provide important information about the lamb's health. A high temperature may indicate an infection or illness, while a low temperature could suggest hypothermia. By taking its temperature, you can assess the severity of the lamb's condition and determine the appropriate course of action, such as contacting a vet or administering immediate care. Calling the vet is a logical step after assessing the lamb's temperature, as they can provide professional guidance and treatment.

    What type of feed is alfalfa?

    • A.

      Fiber/roughage

    • B.

      Concentrate

    • C.

      Protein

    • D.

      Energy

    Correct Answer
    A. Fiber/roughage
    Explanation
    Alfalfa is classified as a fiber/roughage feed because it is high in fiber content. Fiber/roughage feeds are primarily composed of plant material and provide bulk in the diet, aiding in digestion and promoting gut health. They are typically low in energy and protein compared to concentrate feeds. Alfalfa is commonly fed to livestock as a source of roughage due to its high fiber content and nutritional value.

    If your lamb had the scours and no temperature and was still eating what would your first treatment be?

    • A.

      An injection of antibiotics

    • B.

      Dewormer paste

    • C.

      Kaopectate or Peptobismol

    • D.

      Nothing

    Correct Answer
    C. Kaopectate or Peptobismol
    Explanation
    If a lamb has the scours (diarrhea) but no fever and is still eating, the first treatment would be Kaopectate or Peptobismol. These medications are commonly used to treat diarrhea in animals as they help to soothe the digestive tract and reduce inflammation. Antibiotics may not be necessary if there is no sign of infection, and dewormer paste would be more suitable if worms were the suspected cause. Doing nothing would not address the issue and could potentially worsen the lamb's condition.

    When the judge handles your lamb they are feeling for _________ and _____________

    Correct Answer
    muscle, finish(fat)
    Explanation
    When the judge handles your lamb, they are feeling for muscle and finish (fat). This is because muscle is an important factor in determining the overall quality and marketability of the lamb. Judges assess the muscle development and tone, looking for well-developed and firm muscles. Additionally, finish refers to the amount of fat covering the lamb's body. A good amount of finish is desirable as it contributes to the tenderness, flavor, and juiciness of the meat. Hence, judges evaluate both muscle and finish to determine the lamb's overall conformation and market potential.

    Lambs at school were vaccinated against sore mouth. What type of vaccination was this?

    Correct Answer
    live vaccine
    Explanation
    This vaccination against sore mouth in lambs is a live vaccine. Live vaccines contain weakened or attenuated forms of the pathogen that can still replicate in the body but cause only mild or no symptoms of the disease. By introducing these weakened forms, the immune system is stimulated to produce a response and develop immunity against the actual pathogen. In the case of lambs being vaccinated against sore mouth, a live vaccine would be effective in preventing the disease.
