  • At high feeding rates of greater than 1 kg/animal/day feed twice daily to reduce the risk of digestive upsets and ensure that there is adequate feed space
  • If lambs are to be ad-lib through a creep feeder the level of feed should be increased gradually over a three week period
  • Never feed male lambs or hoggets a ewe feed as it contains high phosphorus and may have added magnesium that increase the risk of urinary calculi
