What to Feed Your Lamb on the Day of the Show

 

 

       1-2 weeks prior to the show hay allowance should be reduced to one handful a day to reduce the appearance of hay belly, this also allows for  proper function of the rumen

         Adjust grain for reduced hay allowance

         The night before the show - remove all water and give a small amount of grain

         The day of the show - withhold water, depending on weather conditions, and give
 access to a small amount of grain

         After the show give the lame full access to water

         If it is a really hot on the day of the show cool your lamb by placing a damp
 cloth on its back

         For specific show-day regulations in your county check with your local extension
 office.
