During the same time as the CD-T shot, all your ewes should receive an intranasal influenza vaccine. Sore Mouth. Sore mouth causes lesions on a sheep.

The health and nutrition of the pregnant ewe largely determines how successful lambing is in any given year. Careful monitoring and management of the pregnant ewe during the five month foetal development will help her cope with the rigours of birth and lactation, and also influence lamb survival, birthweight and production for life.

At the end of lactation, udder management of pregnant ewes includes its clinical examination, culling of ewes considered unsuitable for lactation and, possibly, the intramammary administration of.

Deciding when the ewe flock should be sheared is a major management Management of the pregnant ewe book and one that should not be taken lightly. Shearing pregnant ewes weeks before lambing is a practice that has both advantages and disadvantages.

They are listed below: Advantages: It is easier to spot ewes that are close to lambing and those with udder problems. In general, the objectives of health management of ewes during pregnancy are as follows: (i) successful completion of pregnancy at term, (ii) birth of healthy and viable lambs, with optimal birth and potential weaning bodyweight, (iii) optimum milk production during the subsequent lactation and (iv) improved management in relation to drug residues in animal by: Pregnancy testing by ultrasonic scanning and re-breeding or culling of nonpregnant ewes is an additional mean by which reproduction efficiency can be improved.

Prolificacy and seasonality vary. Appropriate nutrition and management during late pregnancy is one of the key factors influencing lamb survivability and flock productivity (lambs reared per ewe joined), and thus profitability. Correct nutrition in late pregnancy will help to produce lambs at the optimum birth weight and ewes.

Plate In late pregnancy the presence of a foetus(es) can often be detected by gently bouncing the hand into the ewe's lower abdomen (without losing contact with the skin).

FEEDING As stated earlier, good feeding during the last two months of pregnancy can never totally compensate for a small placenta consequent upon inadequate mid pregnancy.

Seventy per cent of foetal growth occurs during the last six weeks of pregnancy. To prevent excessive use of the ewe’s own tissues the diet needs to provide all the nutrients she needs.

Also if feed requirements are met, it will help to prevent other problems such as hypocalcaemia (milk fever) and pregnancy toxaemia (twin lamb). Pregnant ewe lambs should be fed separately from mature ewes. Their nutritional requirements are higher than mature ewes because in addition to being pregnant, they are still growing.

They may also have trouble competing for feeder space. Pregnant ewes should generally not be fed on the ground. Sheep Breeding Management Practices # If 2 services at an interval of 8 to 10 hours are practiced, improvement in conception rate can be achieved.

Sheep Breeding Management Practices # Sheep which do not return to oestrus after 2 cycles should be considered as pregnant sheep and should be separated from the dry, non-pregnant sheep flock. Authoritative yet easy to read, Sheep and Goat Medicine, 2nd Edition covers all the latest advances in sheep and goat medicine, including medical treatment, surgery, theriogenology, and nutrition.

Reasons for Separating: The care andmanagement of ewes and does during the lambing/kidding season can largelydetermine the profits for the year. The good producer will keep constantvigilance over the flock/herd during this period.

INTRODUCTION The intensive sheep management and the wide spread application of the controlled breeding techniques, such as artificial insemination and out-of season breeding, increase the need for an accurate and practical test for early pregnancy diagnosis.

Management factors associated with artificial insemination in the ewe can modify fertility. In reproductive planning, intervals between lambings, season, age of ewe, heat stress, nutrition state or breed are some of the factors which have a great effect on fertility results.

Predictions of the number of fetuses would allow appropriate nutritional management of the ewes in late gestation that will prevent pregnancy toxemia (Ford ), minimize prelambing feeding costs, optimize birth weight, weaning weight and survivability of lambs and reduce the incidence of.

- A ewe showing heat in the morning should be bred in the afternoon. - A ewe showing heat in the evening should be bred the next morning. If you are not sure that a ewe is in heat, make a test by taking her to a ram.

They will both become interested. In breeding ewes, 1 service is usually enough for pregnancy. eliminate non-pregnant ewe lambs and thereby provide a powerful selection tool to establish high fertility ewe flocks.

The method of rectal palpation has been used extensively in the cow and mare. However, due to the lack of size in the rectum to facilitate this procedure in sheep, other means of pregnancy. Animal identification and record keeping. Record keeping is an important aspect of sheep production.

Performance record keeping helps to identify which lambs should be kept as replacements, which ewes should be kept or culled, and which rams sire the best lambs. Management: Splitting ewes by number of lambs nursing is an excellent management technique to minimize feed costs.

Ewes rearing single lambs will require less grain supplementation than twin-rearing ewes. Similarly, triplet-rearing ewes could be provided the extra nutrition needed, if separated from other ewes. Sheep Feeding.

Introduction to Sheep Feeding: Well feeding management in sheep farming plays major role to become successful in the business. Feeding the sheep depends on age and other factors. Whether you are going for commercial dairy sheep farming or commercial meat sheep farming or commercial sheep wool farming, a proper and planed feeding management is necessary .Ewe feed requirements increase in the latter stages of pregnancy and even more so during lactation.

Multiple-bearing ewes need in-creased feed as lambing approaches to prevent them losing condition. Protein supply via a ewe’s milk is the crucial element in providing a good start for lamb growth. Ensuring good ewe nutrition to aid ewe milking is.
