Cann’s Corner

What a challenging summer! Started off well got difficult later on, which is how I see the winter panning out with getting cows to milk. First cuts and some second cuts seem to be feeding well in most cases but not as well as expected on paper.

Third cuts are going to be very challenging with low ME and high NDF being common which we will soon have to deal with has earlier cuts seem to going back quickly.

Feed management of Ewes during pregnancy, for extra lamb vigour.

By Dr Peers Davies MA VetMB PhD MRCVS

In most sheep systems profitability hinges on lambs reared per ewe far more than the scanning percentage because lamb survival varies enormously with many flocks scanning at 180% and above but only selling 120-130%.
There are many reasons for lambs failing to make it through to sale and even more factors influencing lamb growth rate and final carcase value.
