Early Lamb Systems

Early Lamb Systems

This week’s OviCast discusses the pros, cons and alternatives to early lambing systems. Ciaran Lynch is joined by Shane Moore, who is farming in Co. Roscommon and Michael Gottstein, Head of Sheep in Teagasc. Michael outlines the key dates and requirements for early lambing systems for 2021 while Shane explains he has run an early lamb system for many years. He discusses why it initially suited his system and why he has moved away from it in recent years as sheep numbers increased on his farm.
