Studies have clearly demonstrated that the best way to increase profitability in the sheep business is to increase the number of lambs born per lambing. It is then obvious the more of these additional lambs that survive to market weight, and the more quickly they reach that weight, the more profitable they will be, in most cases. This presentation will be limited to the first two of these three important factors affecting sheep production profitability.
