Efficient and profitable sheep production relies on healthy ewes and rams, matched with sound management decisions. In this module, the key points relating to the sheep’s reproduction and factors affecting these management decisions are covered. Records should be kept so that benchmarks can be evaluated, productivity improvement assessed and as an aid in problem solving.

Varies from 1:100 (1%+1) up to 3:100 (3%) or more
