Sheep Scanning

Miserden Estate News Leave a Comment

We spent the afternoon scanning the ewes today to see if they are carrying a single, twins or triplet lambs. We then split them into separate groups and feed them different qualities of feed during the later stages of pregnancy.

The ewes carrying triplets require more feeding, but it is equally important not to over feed ewes with a single lamb otherwise the lamb will grow too large and result in difficulties during labour.
