The Ideal Lambing Season
Realistically, an ideal lambing season is not likely; however, we can manage the ewes to approach the ideal as close as possible.
Increasing Lamb Survival
Proper management of the flock at key times of the production cycle can reduce young lamb mortality. A realistic goal of 10% lamb mortality is attainable by most producers.
Management of Ewes and Lambs at Weaning
Separation at weaning can be stressful for both lambs and the ewe. Management goals should be to keep this stress as low as possible, thereby reducing incidence of disease and health problems in ewes and lambs and allowing the lambs to grow at a normal rate.
