If a flexible grazing method is adopted, one is to graze in groups, divide the flock into small flocks according to age, sex, and size, and the number of each flock ranges from 50 to 100. The fattening sheep and the bred sheep are grazing in groups during the green grass period, and breeding ewes Grazing with the breeding rams in the local area; second, according to the feeding characteristics of the sheep, adopt the method of replaying the pasturing in slices, that is, let the sheep graze in the past grazing place every day after the grazing, and when the sheep is half full, Then go to the fresh pasture to graze. This kind of "mature mature, tight and loose, three full a day" combined with two-season slow (grazing slowly in spring and autumn) and three perseverance (persistent to graze with the group, go out early and return late, and drink twice) are beneficial Increase fat and nurse lambs for grazing sheep.


Sheep farms now mostly use sheds to raise sheep, with reasonable matching of forage and feed, which can save pastoral workers and increase technical efforts. If the combined method of grazing and supplementary feeding is adopted, in addition to grazing during the green grass period, a large number of high-quality forages such as alfalfa should be planted, and straws should be stored and silaged to strengthen supplementary feeding of lambs and field sheep.


In the late pregnancy and early breastfeeding period, the ewes should be given reasonable supplementary feeding, while doing a good job of drinking water, salt supplement and shed hygiene. The feed is based on the forage and season, the condition of the ewe and the composition of the coarse and concentrated feed, generally 51% corn, 8% bran, 23% cake, 10% alfalfa meal, 3% bone meal, 2% salt, and calcium hydrogen phosphate 3%, the supplement is generally 0.5 to 0.7 kg per day per day, supplemented twice in the morning and evening, and given an appropriate amount of high-quality forage. Carefully observe the condition of the ewes before giving birth, and have a dedicated person on duty at night to pick them up with delivery. After the lamb is born, strengthen the cultivation to ensure that the multiple birth lamb breastfeeds. Lambs are given high-quality forage and compound feed from 10 to 14 days after birth. The feed and quantity of supplementary feed are determined by the sheep.
