Pre-Lambing Ewe Nutrition


Lambing time is coming soon or in full swing for many shepherds.

Colostrum quality is key for lamb survival, colostrum quality is largely driven by the Ewe’s overall health and specifically her dietary Protein, Energy, and Vitamin/Trace Mineral status.

Ensure your Ewes are receiving a balanced diet with particular attention paid to the diet density. She has reduced ability to consume large meals in the last 3 weeks pre-partum due to the large proportion of body cavity space that is occupied by the twins or triplet lambs competing with the space for the rumen. If you have questions about their diet density or need to give them a boost give us a call.
