1. Choose good meat sheep male parent

In the case of using Dorper sheep, Suffolk sheep or Australian white sheep crop male parents, the feed conversion rate, growth rate and meat yield rate of the first hybrid sheep have been significantly improved. With the improvement of hybrid generation, all aspects of advantages will become more prominent, but the reproduction rate of ewes will decline to a certain extent. On the whole, the benefit of fattening sheep with 2~3 generations of hybrid sheep can be maximized.

2. Focus on feeding

Sheep have different nutritional requirements at various stages, and only by meeting their nutritional requirements can the growth rate be accelerated. 45 to 90 days of age belong to the growth period of the sheep skeleton, and attention should be paid to the supplement of protein feed and calcium; 90 to 150 days of age belong to the upper fat stage, and attention should be paid to the supplement of energy feed and protein feed.

At the same time, it is necessary to pay attention to the palatability of the feed to increase the feed intake of the sheep. The coarse feed can be processed by crushing, crushing, silage, etc., and the refined coarse feed is mixed with appropriate water when feeding.

3. Focus on management

Attach importance to and strengthen the environmental control of sheep house, sheep immunity and health care, and try to create a good growth and living environment for sheep to reduce the incidence of disease. To ensure that the flock achieves high reproduction rate, high survival rate and rapid growth, while reducing the use of antibiotics and other drugs.

IV. How To Feed Fattening Sheep To Grow Fast?

1. Progress and intensity: When the lamb is fattened, the general fine-wool lamb ends at the age of 8-8.5 months, the semi-fine-wool lamb ends at the age of 7-7.5 months, and the meat lamb ends at the age of 6-7 months. Generally, the intensity is used for fattening and higher The weight gain effect.

2. Diet combination: The feed in the ration should be taken locally, and the combination should be diversified. The ratio of concentrate and coarse feed should be 45% and 55%. During the fattening period of mutton sheep, the amount of feed required per day depends on the condition of the sheep and the type of feed. However, when supplementary feeding is the mainstay, the daily supply of concentrate is generally 200-250 grams of goat lamb and 500-1000 grams of lamb. For example, each of the ewes needs 1.2-1.8 kilograms of hay, 3.2-4.1 kilograms of silage corn, and 0.3 kilograms of cereal feed per day, while the lambs of the year are 0.5-1.0, 1.8-2.7 and 0.45-1.4 kilograms.

The feed for fattening sheep can be separated from grass and feed, or mixed with fine and coarse feed. Powdered feed should be properly mixed and wet to feed sheep. Lamb pellets have a diameter of 1-1.3 cm, large sheep 1.8-2.0 cm. Sheep fattening with pellets can increase daily weight gain by 25%.

①Concentrated diet: It is only suitable for fattening of strong and heavy lambs, such as the initial weight of about 35 kg, and the slaughter weight of 48-50 kg after 40-55 days of intensity fattening. Management should ensure that each lamb eats 45-90 grams of roughage per day. The live weight of the sheep in the pen is larger, about 35 kg for sheep and 20 kg for goats. The sheep in the pen are only given a trip of 3-5 days to inject the triple vaccine to prevent enterotoxemia, and another injection every 14-15 days. Ensure drinking water, as long as you add antibiotics to the water for sheep purchased from outside, take it for 5 days. Keep the feed in the trough without interruption, and each lamb should occupy a slot of 7-8 cm.

②Coarse feed type ration: It can be divided into two types according to the feeding method. One is for ordinary troughs, where the concentrate and coarse feed are fed separately; the other is for automatic feeders, where the concentrate and coarse feed are fed together.

③ Silage-type diet: mainly corn silage, which can account for 67.5-87.5% of the diet. It is not suitable for early fattening lambs and short-term intensity fattening lambs, but can be used for small lambs with a breeding period of more than 80 days. . The daily increase is important to reach 110-160 grams, and the lamb’s daily food intake is not less than 2.30 thousand

V. Prospects for Sheep Farming


1. Mutton consumption has been rising slowly, and the market prospects are good. Generally from childhood to adult size, within about two years. However, with the differences in breeds, raising levels, and breeding requirements, it can basically be determined between 0.5 and 2 years. Good breeding and good variety can reach 50 kg in half a year. If there is not enough weeds, the key to captive breeding is to control the cost of feed.

2. Nowadays, people’s dietary structure has also undergone great changes. Lamb contains low cholesterol and is rich in nutrients. It is gradually being recognized by people, and its consumption is also increasing, which has also driven the development of the sheep industry and increased the price of mutton. Climbing high, so judging from the current situation, the prospect of mutton sheep breeding is bright

As people's demand for mutton continues to increase, for some people in the breeding industry, it seems to see business opportunities. But if you want sheep to grow quickly, you must pay attention to the time and methods of raising sheep. Hope some of the methods mentioned above can be helpful to you.
