A simple and efficient feeding program for sheep

Selecting specific ingredients that will give the best results at the best price is very important, in order to keep production costs as low as possible. Sheep have unique characteristics that should be taken advantage of as much as possible. For instance, sheeps can digest whole grains very efficiently and their feed consumption can be regulated by salt.

Here are some simple, basic feed rations to maximize the growth rate of lambs and to meet the nutritive requirements of young ewes, ewes and rams.

- Free choice mineral

- Whole barley

-Good quality forage

- Small quantity of protein supplement or soybean meal
