Ewe Feeding in Early and Mid-pregnancy

Key points

  • Start rationing feed by lengthening ewe grazing rotation. Feeding low quality supplements may help achieve this.
  • Feed well-conditioned ewes at maintenance at about 1.1-1.2 kg DM/day intake per head for a 60-65 kg ewe at condition score 3.
  • Preferentially feed light, poorly-conditioned ewes at about 1.3-1.5 kg DM/day intake per head.
