Product description – Sheep Lambing Houses

Increase your profits

When lambing, more multiples equals more money. A PSG injection at ovulation = more multiples.

As a farmer, you will know, that with lambing in the field. The mother looks for the lamb while the mother-to-lamb bond is being established. Often, the weaker of the lambs are left abandoned and your lambing mortality rate increases.

A sheep lambing house shed allows for vastly improved lamb and ewe management during the lambing season.

There are other immediate benefits, for example, in a lambing shed, the mother-on role is reversed – the twins are looking for the mother (normally the mother looks for the lamb), and because the ewe is there in the pen with the lambs, the lamb-on rate is much higher.

This means that your lambing mortality rate goes right down.

Typical weaning rates in the field are between 80-85%.

Farmers using lambing houses are regularily achieving a weaning rate of between 130-140%. That’s an average of 63% increase in sale-able lambs. A great return on investment in anyone’s book. Paying these returns into the cost of the lambing house will cover the structure cost, which becomes an asset, in a relatively short time-frame.

There are farmers who have been employing a dedicated worker in the lambing house that are achieving up to a 170% weaning rate. That is an increase in sale-able lambs of 112.5%.

Work smarter

It’s freezing out there, now you have to go out into the fields and climb into your bakkie to inspect your lambs & ewes. Walking over to the lambing shed and flicking on the light– is that not a better option?

Here’s a few more benefits of using a sheep lambing house:

  • Easy to tag lambs – manage your flock accurately.
  • Vastly improved lamb & ewe health management.
  • Mothering ability is clearly evident (good ewes are aggressive, they stand over their lambs). Thus, culling decisions are more accurate. You end up with a better flock over time.
