Are You Ready for Lambing Season???
November / December see the preparations for the busy lambing season which is an important time in most farmers diaries. During Autumn and early Winter most farms put into place procedures in managing animal welfare
Developed by our own in-house team of designers, engineers and architects our sheep houses have proven to;
Increased Flock Survival Rate
Lambs struggle in the British winter and the survival rate is low in unhoused flocks.
But its not just lambs that suffer, due to harshening British weather patterns it has proven that flocks have a higher survival rate when housed during the winter months. Lamb surveil rate can be up by as much as 30%.
Time & Labour Saving with a Reduction in Staff Costs.
Better animal welfare when the flock is centralised and there is a high reduction in the time and man-power needed.
Lower Feed costs and Increased Profitability.
Housed sheep need less food and have a lower nutritional requirements than flocks that are kept outside during the winter. Ewes aren't exposed to the stress of rain, cold, snow and wind as with unhoused ewes and twin lamb disease can be prevented when housed. food wastage can also be avoided with occurs with outside feeding.
Benefits in Grassland Protection
Housing your flock ensures grass potential and eliminates winter poaching.
