I am curious what any of you raising lambs and sheep are using for your feed mix?
We are using a pretty good quality of Hay, and are training them with a mixture once a day at one location and twice a day at another.

Also, curious about needing to offer the lambs more minerals, as currently we are reconsidering minerals. We have offered minerals free choice, but there has been little interest.

Is there anyone on here raising lambs currently, that would like to share what has or has not worked, in regards to sheep?

What kind of minerals do you serve?

Should or how do we take into account our deficiencies of our land? Selenium, for sure...need to investigate to get more details.
