Since newborn lambs are still relatively young, their adaptability and disease resistance are weak, and breeding management needs to be strengthened. In addition, at the same time, care should be taken not to frighten the lambs, and to improve a healthy and good living environment. For those with insufficient milk from the ewe, we must promptly feed them according to the actual situation.

1. Sanitary cleaning


The impact of hygiene on lambs is extremely high. The functions of the born lambs are not perfect in all aspects, and the immune system has not formed a complete cycle. At this time, some diseases are extremely easy to invade. In the early stage, great attention should be paid to the umbilical cord of the lamb. Many early-stage lambs are caused by infection here. The cleaning of the sheep barn is also very important, especially the ewe. The lamb is very dependent on the ewe in the early stage. If the ewe is very dirty, it is easy to spread the disease to the lamb. Some feces in the sheep barn should be cleaned up in time, and some wool should be cleaned up. The wool is very easy to be adsorbed by the lamb and stimulate its fragile parts to cause infection.


2. Breast milk guarantee


Goat milk is the most important source of nutrition in the early stage of lambs, especially the colostrum secreted in the first few days of birth. At this time, the colostrum is necessary to ensure the quality of nutrition and the supplement of trace elements. , So let the lamb eat as soon as possible, can effectively ensure the health and growth of the lamb. Generally, after 3-4 days, the ewe's secretion is not colostrum, but normal milk. At this time, in addition to ensuring sufficient ewe milk, we must also ensure its quality. Feed the ewe more concentrate to ensure the milk The high-yield quality. The eating time should be as balanced as possible, so that the digestion and absorption of the lamb will be effectively guaranteed.


3. Feed selection


Forage is the main force in the late growth of lambs, so the choice of forage feeding time is very important. Too early lambs will not absorb the forage, and too late will lead to insufficient nutrient supply. Generally, the time for lambs to feed forage can start after two weeks. At the beginning, the forage should be tender so that it will not damage the digestive organs of the lamb. Secondly, if you start feeding, it is best cooked food, which is conducive to the absorption of the lamb. If the leaves are young, it is better to feed them appropriately. .


4. Disease prevention


Early disease prevention is very important. If the early stage is not done well, the later stage will have a high risk of disease, so many vaccines for lambs must be injected in time. Then there is the maintenance of temperature, which is generally controlled at 25°C-30°C. Too low temperature will reduce the immunity of the lamb and is not good for health. Good early stage allows the lamb to exercise properly to maintain physical activity, and the fattening speed of lambs that are too comfortable will be relatively slow. If conditions permit, it is best to release the sheep pen to expose the lambs to the sun as soon as possible, which can effectively improve their health.
