Twpdra

Right, so I can't get the lamb autopsied as the VLA isn't accepting any carcasses or samples at the present time, so I have no way of finding out what he died of and trying to prevent it happening again in future, and the local Animal Health office says that I can't even move the carcass to take it to the incinerator so I'm supposed to just find a quiet corner of my farm and leave him there to rot. Yeah, that sounds nice and safe and healthy...

Damn, that stinks (no pun). This all sounds incredibly stressful and sad. I hope whatever it was wasn't contagious.

It also reminds me how far detached my peers and I are from our food sources.

Yuck. Sorry about the lamb. That just doesn't sound good at all. I, too, hope it's not contagious.
