Pre-lambing feeding for the pedigree ewes

Got a 18% protein ration for pre-lambing feeding of the pedigree ewes today. The ewes carrying multiple lambs (triplets and quads) were started to be fed 250gms/day of a 14% ration since 16th October and gradually increased to 500gms/day by 30th October and now they are being changed over to 600gms of an 18% ration. 38 more words
