Table of contents

Ask the breeder if you can buy several pounds of the concentrate that he has been feeding, if it is different than what you will be feeding. If it has not had 2 vaccinations for enterotoxemia, ask the breeder to give it one before you take the lamb.

The 2 vaccinations should be 3 - 4 weeks apart. If it has only had one, you need to be sure it gets another at the proper time. When you get your lamb home, put it in a small area either by itself or with other lambs the same size where it can find the food and water easily.

Do not put it with adult ewes, calves, horses, etc. Make sure that clean water and good quality hay are available. Let it get acquainted with you and its surroundings for a couple of days before turning it out in a bigger area such as a pasture or attempting to halter break or train it.

If the lamb has been on grain , give it slightly less than it had been getting. Use the grain you got from the breeder for your first feeding or two, then slowly mix in your feed so that the change over is gradual. Never make sudden feed changes.

When you decide to increase the amount of grain , do so slowly. Feed the same amount for at least 3 days before increasing the amount again. If you increase the grain too rapidly, your lamb will quit eating altogether and get diarrhea.

This is bad because it will lose weight. Do not put new hay and grain on top of uneaten hay and grain. Clean out the uneaten portion and do not feed as much for the next feeding or two.
