It's the time of year when extra nutrition for the ewes is vital. Increased feed intake at breeding (also known as flushing) has proven to increase conception rates in sheep. Also, when lambing comes around, the extra nutrients in the feed helps to maintain body condition and increase lamb health.
Homestead Harvest Sheep Blend is a mix of Non-GMO corn, barley, wheat, soybean, alfalfa, minerals, and natural health supplements. Our mineral package creates a feed with a proper calcium to phosphorus ratio of 2:1 to help prevent any calcium deficiencies or urinary calculi issues. The mix of essential oils and herbs we add, contains oregano which has recently been proven to prevent issues with coccidia. And the other vitamin supplements, probiotics, kelp, and omega 3's all help to keep your flock in the best condition.
The optimum time for premium nutrition is when animals are pregnant. Conception rates go up and birthing losses go down with the right diet. Make sure your flock is getting what they need for the winter!
