Improving ewe nutrition for better returns

British beef and lamb promotional organisation EBLEX has launched a new nutrition manual for feeding ewes to obtain better results.

A new Better Returns Programme (BRP) manual offering sheep producers practical advice on how to improve returns by feeding their ewes more efficiently has been produced by EBLEX.
'Improving ewe nutrition for better returns', explains the fundamental rules of sheep feeding and how management tools such as Body Condition Scoring (BCS) can help producers ensure that they are feeding ewes the right amount for their needs.
The guide has been distributed to nearly 12,000 sheep farmers and is available to download from the EBLEX website (registration required)
EBLEX is the new Beef and Lamb Sector Company for England. It is a division of the Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board (AHDB) which was established on 1 April 2008.
