Nutrition is one of the keys to healthy livestock and extremely important before lambing and kidding season. Nearly 70% of fetal growth occurs during the last 4 to 6 weeks of pregnancy, while rumen capacity is decreasing. The result is the need for increased nutrition, usually from a more nutrient-dense diet. Extra nutrition is needed to support fetal growth, especially if there are multiple fetuses. Extra feed is needed to support mammary development and ensure a plentiful milk supply. Proper nutrition will ensure the birth of strong, healthy offspring of moderate birth weight.

Birth weight is highly correlated to lamb and kid survival, with low and high birth weight offspring usually experiencing the highest mortality. Dr. Andrew Weaver will discuss management strategies producers can use to get ready before lambs and kids are born this 2024 season to increase the survival and health of our livestock.
