Lamb Feeds

The approach to lamb feeding depends on lambing date.

Early Lambing

This system is for the the early lamb market.

Lambs are typically born in January and intensively finished on ad lib feeding. In this system lambs can achieve marketing weight at 10 to 14 weeks of age. Growth rates can exceed 400g per day. For this system we would recommend Prime Lamb  Creep Pellets.

Spring Lambing

These lambs are not as intensively reared as the early lambing system and will be typically be offered a small amount of creep whilst suckling their mothers.

Prime Lamb Creep is recommended in this situation.

Store Lamb finishing

Store lambs are fed to finish  for the autumn/winter market.

Prime Lamb Intensive Finisher Pencils will help achieve a rapid finish with either straw or forage.

This diet can also be fed as a general feed safely to rams and breeding stock at a restricted level.

All Duffields lamb feeds are carefully formulated to ensure palatabilty and performance.

Correct minerals and ammonium chloride help to prevent urinary calculi.
