Store lambs

Fat LambsFor bought-in store lambs, always treat for parasites and vaccinate, don’t assume the vendor has done this as issues here will limit live weight gain.  The transition from grazing to indoor finishing is critical when purchasing store lambs either straight off the hills or out of the market.  Careful nutritional management is essential to avoid digestive disorders, such as acidosis, and growth checks.  Where skeletal frame growth is required, rather than finish, a ration containing at least 16% crude protein is needed.  Insufficient protein prevents growth of the animal.
