Want to lamb during the daylight hours?

Just a note........if you want to have your ewes lamb during the daytime so that you can keep an eye on them, feed them their grain first thing in the morning. If you want them to lamb late at night/super early am, feed them grain in the evenings. This came off another email list, but it's pretty darned reliable. All of my registered lambs have been born during the daylight so far, and they are grained in the early morning hours. My unregistered's are grained late evening and lamb during the night/wee hours of the morning. It works here and no guarantees it will work there, but certainly worth trying if you have a preference!
