Lambs were weighed on day 0, 32, 56, 83, and Lambs were harvested after the d feeding trial and car-cass data collected. Performance and carcass data were analyzed as a completely randomized design. In a self-feeding situation, livestock have feed in front of them at all times. With hand (or limit) feeding, a set amount of hay or grain is fed twice per day at approximately the same time each day. There are pros and cons to each feeding system. Lambs and kids that are self-fed will consume more feed and gain faster.

    Use of ensiled forages may provide more cost effective methods of finishing lambs. The benefits of high feed-value grass silage in finishing beef cattle, producing liquid milk and feeding to pregnant ewes are well documented. However, there is little information on the benefits of high feed-value grass silage in the diet of finishing lambs. Feeding hay. Winter pasture. Sheep grazing. Body condition scoring. Balancing rations. A ration is the amount of feed that is fed to livestock during a hour period. Sheep should be fed rations that have been properly balanced for energy, protein, minerals (especially calcium and phosphorus), and vitamins.

I'm hoping they'll also browse on whatever they can find even through the winter (I know they won't get much nutrition from it, but it'll keep them busy). RP Strategies for Feeding the Ewe Flock R.M. Jordan University of Minnesota injuring the lambs is the major problem in feeding multiple groups of ewes per day in the same feed bunks or 2. reducing the number of winter feeding days by extending the fall grazing period with brassicas (rape or turnips), corn stalks, or fertilized grass.
