Recording the lambing performance of ewes under field conditions

Recording the lambing performance of ewes under field conditions

Australian Jour Exptl Agric And Animal Husb 3(10): 228-231

A technique is described which enables the accurate division of a flock of ewes into 3 categories of lambing performance[long dash]dry ewes, ewes which have lost their lambs (lambed and lost) and ewes with lambs at foot (lactating ewes). This technique is of particular value when a record of lambing by individual ewes is required under field conditions. It also provides a rapid and inexpensive means of surveying problems of flock fertility on grazing properties.
