Triplet bearing ewes and their lambs are at higher risk of mortality and other animal welfare issues. Although only about 5% of ewes are currently scanned for triplet foetuses the precise magnitude of the risk associated with excessive mortality of triplet bearing ewes and lambs is unknown. The project is seen as an important step for the industry in order to mitigate risks associated with this cohort of animals. 

 

This project looks at managing fecund flocks to improve the performance of triplet dams and their lambs. Stage 1 of the project was to undertake a producer needs analysis and key research priorities were ascertained during every stage of the process. If you would like to be involved in the next stage of the project, read this analysis and contact your regional coordinator. Project info HERE
