This webinar will focus on key nutrients that sheep need in their rations. I will cover protein, energy, minerals and vitamins, sampling feeds and software available to do the calculations. Some of it will include reading feed tags to know what is in the ration. I will also spend time explaining terminology like dry matter basis and as fed basis, parts per million and milligrams per kilogram. Feed costs are the single largest cost of production and understanding nutrient requirements and meeting them economical is critical to profitable sheep production.

This webinar is made possible with funding support from the American Sheep Industry Association and the Rebuild the Sheep Inventory Committee.
