What are the benefits of a Lamb Creep Feeder?
Our lamb creep, feeder, is a means of providing supplemental nutrients to nursing calves, usually in the form of grain, protein supplements, commercial calf creeps, or high-quality forages.
1)Our Lamb Creep Feeder is easy to use fill and move.
2) reduced labour – the lambs are heavier at weaning and being drafted earlier. This will allow for a reduction in the labour required for herding and handling etc.
3) reduced veterinary costs – because lambs are drafted earlier they will need less dosing and flystrike treatments.
4) more grass for the ewes pre-mating – on many sheep farms, lambs compete with the ewes for grass during the pre-mating period. Having more grass available pre and post mating can pay large dividends in terms of litter size and ewe body condition.
5) higher lamb price – drafting lambs earlier may result in a higher price per kg.
