Early weaning of lambs from ewes on native pasture offers several advantages to the range operator. Increased base ewe flock numbers and/or less grazing pressure, better range management, less carcass damage from needles and better feed efficiency of a younger lamb in drylot are some of the advantages that can be listed for early weaning.
A study was initiated at the Antelope Range Field Station in 1971 to study alternative management systems for range lamb production.
