Creep feeding lambs is where sheep producers should turn to if they are struggling with low-quality forage or limited grazing options. It also allows you to have the opportunity to get lambs started on feed at a much younger age. 

The value of creep feeding for early lambing flocks to achieve rapid growth rates, to catch the early high priced lamb market, is proven.

Creep fed lambs will potentially grow more than three times faster than non-creep fed lambs. In wet and cold late springs, some creep feeding will be invaluable for lamb survival. 

Choosing the right creep feed for your lambs

It is essential that the feed you are offering your lambs is the best choice for their breed and genetic make-up as well as your growth targets and profit margins.

At Wynnstay our experts will take the time to get to know you and your flock, to ensure we are recommending the best lamb creep pellets feed for you needs.

Usually for December/January lambing flocks who wish to finish lambs on peak of spring price rise. Lambs are weaned at six weeks and remain indoors on pellets until finished.

Provide a well lit, clean area to encourage lambs to creep feed. Provide dry bedding, good ventilation and fresh water at all times. Offer LAMBMASTER gradually, over a period of seven days and then ad lib.

All lamb breeds are used on this system where lambs are finished on a rising price, usually in the New Year. Aim for 0.75m2 lying area and 0.3m trough space/lamb. Allow a maximum of 40 lambs/pen, with dry bedding, good ventilation and adequate lighting. Provide fresh water at all times. It is advisable to vaccinate for clostridial diseases and pasteurella before housing.

Gradually introduce LAMBMASTER over a period of seven days, then feed ad lib, ensuring availability at all times. If lambs are not bedded on straw, 100g/hd/day of hay should be available.

  • Typical DLWG of 150-250g/hd/day, finish in 10 days to six weeks from housing, FCR 5:1 - 7:1

Strip graze to avoid wastage. Provide clean, fresh water at all times and offer a small quantity of hay or straw, or offer a grass runback.
