Early Lactation Considerations
Ewes will produce milk to according to the lambs needs. If the lambs do not nurse then the ewe will not produce that much. The ewe must be stimulated to produce milk. Ewe's that are nursing singles will adjust their milk production down; whereas, ewe's nursing twins will increase their production by twenty to fourty percent more, thus requiring greater needs nutritionally. You should separate ewe's that are nursing singles, twins, and triplets in separate areas so that each group gets the nutritional requirements that they need. Each group will have a different requirement nutritionally.
