  • Navigating Ewe Pregnancy and Winter Feeding

    Preparing for the Cold Season Ahead As winter approaches in Victoria and South East South Australia, sheep farmers face critical decisions regarding ewe nutrition and management. Let's delve into key aspects to watch out for. 1. Ewe Pregnancy Nutrition Early Pregnancy: During early pregnancy, foetal growth is minimal, allowing ewes to be maintained on a diet Similar to dry sheep. Aim for a minimum condition score of two (ideally three) for ewes. Twin-bearing ewes Should have a condition score 0.5 higher than singles. Avoid overfeeding during this period to prevent rapid lamb growth and birth difficulties. Late Pregnancy: In the final six weeks of pregnancy, significant lamb growth occurs. The entire conceptus Weight increases by approximately 10kg. Ewes require a diet comprising at least 8% crude protein. Grain supplementation can help Meet their nutritional needs. - Skeletal material in developing foetuses draws heavily on the ewe's Calcium stores. Adequate Calcium intake is crucial. 2. Winter Feeding Strategies Hay and Grain: Recent rains may lead to pasture growth, but many farmers will still need to supplement Feed during winter. Increase feed by 20% in cold conditions. To boost energy intake, provide good-quality hay in paddocks during wet and cold weather. Mismothering Prevention: Handfeeding lambing ewes reduces mismothering. Feed ewes daily and in the afternoon to Maintain consistent nutrition. Adjust mob size and stocking rate to minimise mismothering risks. 3.
