Supplementing lactating ewes:The high levels of rainfall over the last 10 days and poor ground conditions mean that early lambing flocks are likely to be faced with retaining ewes and lambs indoors for a significant period of time.

Twin-suckling ewes in good body condition and offered ad-lib access to moderate quality silage (68-70+DMD) will require 1.2kg to 1.5kg concentrate supplementation, rising to 1.5kg to 1.7kg for ewes lacking condition.
