feeding sheep

Ewes have very specific nutritional requirements at various stages of their breeding cycle, from flushing, through pregnancy, to lambing and beyond. Our target with ewes is to get them in lamb, have a high scanning percentage backed up with a high lambing percentage. After that, our targets move on to the ultimate aim of growing lambs on to be sold.

We manufacture a range of nuts and rolls for feeding to ewes at all stages of their breeding cycle, to make sure they are in good condition, give birth with few difficulties and that the lambs are strong and viable. Buckets, licks and other complimentary products are also available to meet her changing requirements.

On top of this our range of lamb creeps, growing and finishing feeds mean that lambs can be grown either as replacements, stores or finishing stock at optimum rates to suit the farming system and target market. Dugdale Nutrition also has a range of diets for feeding to milking ewes. Milking sheep need highly targeted nutrition to make sure that their requirements for pregnancy, lambing and lactation are all met.

Our ruminant team, are all trained to FAR standards and fully able to maximise the performance of breeding ewes, milking ewes and lambs. Contact us to find out how.
