How to lure lambs early


7 to 10 days after birth, lambs will imitate the behavior of the ewe and eat a certain amount of fodder when grazing with the ewe or taking feed. At this time, the soybeans can be fried, crushed and sprinkled in the feeder to lure lambs. In the initial stage, each lamb can be fed 10-50 grams per day, and the supplementary amount will be gradually increased after the lambs get used to it. Lamb supplementary feeding should be carried out separately. When the lamb's feed intake reaches about 100 grams, it can be supplemented with mixed concentrate containing about 24% crude protein. In the late lactation period, lambs can be grouped separately during the day, and dedicated pastures can be used for grazing, combined with supplementary mixed concentrate; high-quality green hay can be placed on hay racks and allowed to eat freely, preferably grass and leguminous green hay.
