how does that work, do you literally put like a 250kg bale for so many ewes over a set time period?Housed lambing here, only singles and ewe lambs get ad-lib hay, twins and triplets are restricted.
Ewes would naturally be on short grass at lambing and overindulgence wouldn't be that common.
Is that crystalyx as ours always get them and doesn’t make any differenceWe have tried all sorts some years thinking we’ve cracked it but this year they have made up for any gains in other years.Happened to mention to a sales rep about it and he suggested trying those red lick buckets,reconned the urea in them would break down the silage in the rumen faster. So far it has worked in the 4 pens I’ve put them in,and they must be good because I haven’t had any in the other pens either since.
That was my thinking. We never seem to get mules doing it, at least not early.I think it’s more to do with what condition they were in at early pregnancy. Personally I think it would be foolish to cut the feeding down now I doubt it will make any difference and probably make more problems of other sorts ie lack of milk and twin lamb
