Sheep = bred for too much wool = maggots = insecticide.
Sheep = intensive for high output = cocktail of workers = resistance etc etc
When will we break this destructive cycle?
Short haired robust sheep? Goats?
Are we missing something?
Nutrition, is more than half, if you #### that up, you are on a hiding to nothing.Yes, management and selection.
For example, lambs getting too big before birth because of lots of clover (before lambing?) is purely down to your grazing management. Get some electric fencing up if your fields are too big. Nutritional management is half the job done, regardless of whether it’s managing forage or concentrates.
