6. A self-feeder for grain may be used satisfactorily in fattening lambs when a full feed of grain is to be fed. 7 whole grain is better than ground grain for fattening lambs. 8. Sweet clover hay of good quality may be substituted for alfalfa hay with equally good results. Offered ad lib, lambs will eat kg of creep and finish quicker. The inclusion of sugarbeet pulp in cereal-based diets for fattening lambs seems to enhance the ruminal environment and prevent acidosis, but has no positives effects on feed intake or animal performance.   Sheep Fattening and Goat Fattening – Weight factor of animals: Weight of animals at the start of the feeding operation governs the duration of feeding and the types and amounts of feedstuffs needed. Lightweight ( kg) animals can use more roughage, whereas heavier lambs (>25 kg) require more concentrates and a shorter feeding period.   My White Dorper lambs have their ideal butchering weight between 80 and 95 pounds live. Up to pounds they aren’t too fat yet. However, it takes more input to get these additional pounds. Smaller breeds like Southdown and Border Cheviots reach this ideal weight earlier but are also lighter. This makes them ideal to produce hothouse lambs.

  Re: Fattening lambs inside Depending what you mean by a few, you could just bring in the best ones in batches for that bit of final finish. We found just two or three weeks inside on pellets and a bit of barley+ beet pulp made a big difference.

HAMMOND Salt is essential to the health and thrift of sheep; this is the universal experience of practical sheep-raisers and livestock authorities. Practically no literature in digested form is available. Lambs grazing plantain put on more weight ( g/head/day) than lambs grazing perennial ryegrass ( g/head/day) when both were offered an allowance of kg DM/head/day (Moorhead et al., ). However, lamb liveweight gain and hot carcass weight was lower when lambs grazed on plantain compared to chicory (Fraser and Rowarth, ). FEEDLOT FATTENING LAMBS Brian Tarr, Ruminant Nutritionist Shur-Gain Division, Maple Leaf Foods Feeding lambs for maximum gain and feed efficiency can be a challenge. A good feeding program is an essential component of the success. However, there are some general considerations when feeding lambs that help ensure success.
