The effect of early weaning of lambs on their growth and development during intensive use of ewes



Nauchnye Issledovaniya v Romanovskom Ovtsevodstve Tematicheskii Sbornik (4): 143-151



Romanov ewes (10/group), aged 10-20 mth and weighing 41-46 kg, were mated first in Sept. 1973, and the performance of their offspring was studied for 3 consecutive lambings. For lambs born at the 3 lambings and weaned at 30 days of age, body weight averaged 8.7, 7.9 and 7.1 kg resp. at weaning, 13.4, 12.0 and 11.5 kg at 60 days, 23.4, 21.3 and 19.9 kg at 100 days, and 30.0, 34.5 and 29.3 kg at 6 mth.
