Management during late pregnancy

  1. 1. Management during late pregnancy • Extra nutrition is needed to support fetal growth and ensure a plentiful supply of milk, especially colostrum (first milk); energy (TDN) is most important. • Ewes/does should always have access to fresh clean drinking water, free of ice. • Ewes/does should be vaccinated for clostridium perfringins type C & D and tetanus (CDT) 3 to 4 weeks prior to lambing/kidding to provide protection for newborns. • Ewes/does that require deworming or would benefit most should be drenched prior to or shortly after birthing; be sure to give an effective treatment. • Woolly sheep should be sheared or crutched prior to lambing. • Be ready: be sure to set up pens (or paddocks) and gather supplies ahead of time. ’
