Let's Grow Webinar - Oct. 11, 7 p.m. CDT
September 30, 2016

There is still time to register for the next Let's Grow industry webinar. On Oct. 11 at 7 p.m. CDT, Jay Parsons, Ph.D., University of Nebraska-Lincoln, will be hosting Improving Reproductive Performance of Ewe Lambs Bred at Eight Months of Age, where the issue of breeding ewe lambs to increase production levels and efficiency will be addressed.

Paul Kenyon, Ph.D., Professor of Sheep Husbandry at Massey University, New Zealand, will be the guest presenter for this session. He will be discussing the results of a multiple-year scientific program that was undertaken to identify:
  1. optimal nutritional management prior to breeding and in pregnancy and lactation,
  2. optimal management of the ram to maximize reproductive results,
  3. management of the young dam in late pregnancy and in lactation to maximize the survival of the lamb(s),
  4. live weight and body condition score targets,
  5. management strategies to maximize the chance that lifetime productivity is increased by breeding her at a young age, and
  6. examine the productivity of offspring born to ewe lambs.
