The number of lambs produced per ewe per year is a fundamental productivity and profitability benchmark in sheep production regardless of production system. Nutritional management has a huge impact on reproductive efficiency at many levels including the onset of puberty in ewe lambs, ovulation rate, and out of season breeding success. This seminar will discuss feeding programs and better define nutritional targets to improve these reproductive outcomes. Consideration will also be given to practical and feasible ways of improving these outcomes in different production systems.

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