The single most important determinant of conception rate is nutrition. High condition score (CS) ewes conceive more lambs.1 Maintaining a high CS (3), rather than feeding for increased CS, results in better fertitlity.1
Appropriate condition score (3) for 8 weeks prior to joining and maintenance of CS through to lambing; adequate vitamin and mineral status.
Key Supplement Events:
8-10 weeks pre-joining through to confirmed pregnancy
Benefits: Stimulation of rumen activity and DM intake; improved follicular activity and fertility.
Trimester 1 and 2
Benefits: Boost ewe immunity reproductive diseases; improved lamb parasite tolerance and resistance, improved fertility of progeny.
Benefits: Boost animal vigour for reduction in lambing difficulties; improved colostrum quality/ lamb survivability, increase wool fibre production and diameter in progeny.
TimeWise Lambs & Weaners
Poor ewe nutrition depresses colostrum production and quality, which is one of the greatest causes of lamb deaths. Lambs exposed to supplements prior to weaning are more likely to feed well as adults. Increasing lamb growth rate by 0.25-0.5 kg/month increases survival rate by 74%.
Minimum 90% lamb survival (singles); maximum ewe milk yield and lamb growth rate/ weaning weight.
Key Supplement Events:
4 Weeks pre-lambing
Benefits: Maintenance of dam feed intake; preparation of muscle, organs and udder, improved lactation and high quality colostrum.
For 10 – 12 Weeks post lambing
Benefits: Increased milk yield and reduction in mastitis, improved lamb weight gain and immune status; lamb initiated to supplementation behaviour.
Benefits: Replace electrolytes (K, MG, Na, Ca) after removing milk; stimulation of eating and drinking; support of stressed immune system; presence of familiar red trough.
