Sheep raising is one of the most important branches of animal husbandry. Sheep are reared for two purposes: wool and mutton production.

In sheep kept for mutton early maturity and quality of meat are known to be most important. Mutton is likely to be muchmore valuable than wool in Great Britain. The reverse is true for Australia, South Africa and other countries where the Merino is predominant.

The necessary qualities common to all breeds of sheep are hardiness, prolificacy, milking capacity of ewes, activity and good wool characters.

There are two main divisions of sheep in Great Britain which have to be carefully differentiated. They are mountain flocks and lowground flocks. The former are kept for breeding purposes only, the latter are kept for fattening as well as breeding.

As to the hill sheep feeding it is considered to be the simplest and most natural method of sheep-rearing. The flock is very hardy and eats all kinds of moses and grasses growing on hills and these seem to be sufficient for the sheep.

- 17 -

Supplementary feeding is unlikely to take place in ordinary years, unless the ground is heavily covered with snow. Winter being very stormy, however, it becomes necessary to supply the sheep with hay during the period when the ground is covered. If only a thin layer of snow covers the ground most sheep seem to be able to find the feed, provided the surface la not frozen hard. Where hay can not be supplied some sheep farmers provide the flock with maize and turnips.

To improve the offspring only healthy, vigorous rams are chosen for breeding purposes. Pastures being good, little grain is fed to the rams. Concentrates are fed before the breeding time and during it to keep the rams in breeding condition during the mating campaign. Rams being in thin flesh, some linseed meal may be added to the grain part of their ration.

Feeding Sheep in the USA

Sheep are best adapted to the land that is high and dry. In general sheep rearing is not practised in regions where it is both too hot and too wet *.

In feeding sheep succulent feeds and roughages as well as good pasture grasses and legume hay may be used in great amounts. Grazing land is usually divided into small plots by movable fencing. Rotational grazing of pastures helps to control diseases and parasites.

As to grains corn is the main low-protein concentrate available in many parts of the United States. Some ether grains are also used in feeding sheep. Grain crops sown ** is the fall provide pasture for sheep during late fall, winter and early spring, Wheat, barley and rye make good winter forage. Where good-quality legume hay is available high-protein concentrates are likely to be unnecessary.

Most lowground flocks are either kept for providing high-class breeding animals, chiefly rams, or they are managed so as to produce as many fat lambs as possible.

Being fed good roughage during the early part of the pregnancyperiod, the pregnant ewes are supplied with the necessary nutrients to be in good condition. Placing the feed some distance from the pen the sheepmen make the ewes take exercise. For a period of 4 to 6 weeks before lambing grain is to be added to the ewe's ration. Whether the amount ofgrain to be fed should be increased is decided, depending on the ewe's condition.

Ewes are known to lamb in a lambing pen. Like the farrowing or calving pens the lambing pen should be cleaned, disinfected and ventilated before the ewe is put into it. The lambing pen should be dry and warm.


On the fat-lamb producing farms a creep feeding is commonly practised. Having been arranged on pasture, the creep allows the lambs to eat the best fresh grass while the ewes following them eat everything left by the lambs.

Pastures are divided into several small paddocks by temporary fencing, each being grazed for 3 to 4 days. Then the sheep are moved to the next one. In this way the sheep are always eating fresh and clean grass.

In addition to feeding on pasture lowground flocks are provided with concentrated rations in troughs. Having finished feeding the sheep, the sheepraiser turns the trough upside down and leaves it so until the next feeding comes. Hay is widely used in feeding the sheep as well. Silage is also fed but to a limited extent.

Sheep grow better, when fed a concentrated ration twice daily. Young lambs should be fed three times a day.

During dry weather in spring or early summer the ewes should be given as much water as they desire, for in this case the milk flow for the lambs will be maintained even though there be little or no growth of succulent grass available.

Fattening Lambs

Lambs in farm flocks should be fed well from birth. When lambs are suckling their mothers on good pasture, little or no grain is needed to the ewes. If pasture grasses are of low quality, creep feeding can be arranged on pasture or some grain mау be fed to the ewes to increase their milk production.

- 27 -

Lambs start to eat solid feeds at the age of two weeks or a little later. Half corn and half oats make a good mixture. Another suitable mixture consists of corn, oats, wheat bran and some protein supplement in proper proportion. For the first two weeks grain for lambs should be ground. The lambs being older than two weeks, grinding is unnecessary.

If lambs are suckling their dams on good pasture, they can reach 80 to 90 lb. in weight in 4-5 months. The mutton at this stage is of the best quality.

Дайте відповідь на наступні питання:

1. How may lambs be fed if pasture grasses are poor?

2. When do lambs begin to eat solid feeds?
 3. What are the two best mixtures for lambs?

Sheep are best adapted to the land that is high and dry, though they may be raised successfully on almost any land that is not too wet. Sheep raising is usually not practised in regions that have a combination of high temperatures and high rainfall *.

To keep the sheep healthy, they should be moved from one grazing area to another. This practice requires fences to divide permanent pastures into several grazing areas. Movable fencing may be used to regulate grazing of forage crops. Sheep do not need grain ifgood pasture is available.

 * Rainfall - опади

Legume hays should make up a large part of the ewes 'winter ration. After the lambs are born grain may be fed to ewes and lambs to supplement available forage.

A strong, healthy lamb needs little care. A weak lamb should be put into a warm place for about two hours after birth. The lamb should be returned to its mother as soon as * it is strong enough to nurse. If the lamb can not nurse, bottle ** feeding may be necessary.

II. Прочитайте текст і виконаєте завдання, дане після тексту.

Feeding Pregnant Ewes

During the early part of the pregnancy period plenty of good roughage provides sufficient nutrients, unless the ewes are unusually thin. Feed part of the roughages at a distance from the pen to make ewes take exercise.

For a period of 4 to 6 weeks before lambing grain is to be added to the ration of the ewes. Feed the grain earlier if the ewes are thin. About 1/2 lb. of oats, corn or other grains or a mixture of grains is fed per ewe per day. If the roughage is of poor quality, feed some high-protein feed in addition to grain.

Ewes that are kept on pasture in winter should have some roughages preferably legume hay in addition to pasturage in periods of poor grazing due to storms or poor grass.

When legume hay isof poor quality or is not available, it may be well to feed a mineral mixture.

Feeding the Ewe and her Lamb

After lambing the ewe and her lambs are to be kept together in a special lambing pen for 2 to 4 days. At this time the ewe is fed legume hay and plenty of water is provided for her. After 2 or 3 days a small amount of grain is added. This is increased gradually to 1 pound per ewe per day.

When ewes and their lambs are placed on pasture, no extra feeding of ewes is necessary, provided the pasture grass is good.

Horses are usually classed аs light horses and work horses. Light horses are used for riding and racing while work horses are used forpulling wagons, plows and other implements.

As with all pregnant animals, the brood mare should be maintained in fair flesh and permitted or forced to get regular and moderate exercise. Confinement and overfeeding are known to be harmful for the health of the animal. Pasture which provides green feed, exercise andsunshine is an excellent environment for brood mares. Pasture grasses being scarce or not available, the mаre should be provided with good-quality legume or mixed hay. The mare is given oats to maintain her in good, strong flesh but not fat.

After foaling the mare and her foal should be kept in a foaling box-stall for the first three or four days. Warm water is very desirable for the mare after foaling. Bran is suitable as her first meal which should be followed by oat hay.

The first milk, colostrum, is a necessity for the young foal. Thefoal will begin to nibble at grass at about three weeks. It does best, having been allowed to run with its dam for five or six months or for longer period in the case of the pedigree stock. Foals should be weaned at 4 to 6 months of age and weaning be done carefully. Take the mare from the foal quietly and far enough for the foal not to hear its mother. After weaning the foal is fed good mixed or legume hay, the amount of oats given depending on its size, appetite and condition. Such feeding should be followed until spring comes when the foal is turned out to pasture.

The young stallion is known to be used not earlier than at the age of three years. The condition of the sire is influenced, to a great extent, by the kind of the ration given.

- 32 -

It should be rich in protein, minerals and vitamins. 0ats with a proper proportion of chaff, bran and hay make the main ration of a horse. The amount of feed fed depends on the quality of the feed given, the age of the horse, as well as on the nature of the work the horse does. In general the heavier the work, the larger the proportion ofgrains in the ration.

Feed the horse four times per day. The second and the last feeds should be large and should be followed by hay. The last feed should be as late as possible and should be followed by the greater part of hay. Large feeds should not be given after very hard work.
