Are your Ewes Fit for Tupping?

Benefits from feeding Superstock Tup2Ewe

The driest May on record and further drought conditions throughout the summer means ewes will be approaching tupping in poorer condition than they should be. If management plans are not put in place now to correct the lower body condition score there is a risk of lower lambing percentages and reduced lamb crops in 2021.

It takes approximately 21 days of good quality grazing (10.5 ME MJ/kg DM) for ewes to gain half a point Condition Score. However, late summer/ autumn grazing will start to drop in quality and this year in particular grazing alone may not be able to provide all the nutrients required as ewes approach lambing

Feeding Superstock Tup2Ewe this year as tupping approaches will provide;

·        Improved nutritional preparation pre-tupping for ewes and rams at a time when pasture quality is declining in digestibility and dry matter

·        Increased lambing percentage by reducing barren ewes and increasing the proportion of twins over singles

·        Shortened lambing spread for easier management and feeding of ewes and marketing of lambs

Research indicates that ewes supplemented at tupping time remain in better body condition score throughout their pregnancy.
