Feeding Directions

More >
Acclimate ewes to Co-op 14% Pelleted Ewe Lactation Feed by feeding at 1% of body weight per day and increase gradually until ewes reach recommended level of consumption. Feed at least 0.75 lb of long stemmed hay per head per day to help maintain rumen health. To maintain lactating ewes, feed Co-op 14% Pelleted Ewe Lactation Feed at 3 to 4 lb per head per day adjusting level to condition of ewes. For heavy lactating ewes, feed Co-op 14% Pelleted Ewe Lactation Feed at 4 to 5 lb per head per day. Feed at far end of pen to encourage exercise. Watch for slow ewes as these are most likely to develop ketosis. Always have clean, fresh water available. Do not exceed 0.30 ppm, supplemental selenium in the total ration.
