Feeding regime

Flock is stocked tight 1.3 LSU/Ha on high sugar grass clover leys receiving 150-180kgN/Ha. Lambs are creep fed for early finishing in an area with limited summer rainfall. The flock is wintered in to protect the grass. Ram lambs recieve no special treatment although over winter ram lambs are fed hay and 0.3kg/head/day soya/sugarbeet mix. We aim to prepare shearling rams for sale off grass (provided there is some!)
