Pregnant Ewes

Pregnant ewes are very special to me. They are the carriers of the new heard coming and therefore they get special attention on the farm. 3 Weeks before mating i feed them a energy food to get them into the growing phase. Once I mate them I continue this for one month to ensure the embryo develops well. Then one month before they lamb I increase the lick to ensure the mothers have enough milk and the new lambs develops to full potential. During this time I do all the necessary inoculations to ensure the mother passes it on to the lambs. This is my favorite group and I could spend some time with this group.
