There are two practices that are essential for efficient and economical feeding at this time. First, the ewes with single lambs should be fed separately from those with twins. The single-rearing ewes should receive approximately 1 lb. of grain per head daily. Those with twins should be fed 1.5 to 2 lbs. each per day, depending on their size and condition. Shelled corn and oats are satisfactory and again the protein shall be supplied by the hay.
