Preliminary analysis from stage 1 of the project investigating the “Impact of mob size and stocking rate on lamb survival” suggests that lamb survival increased as mob size and stocking rates were reduced. Industry-level analysis has identified that increasing the survival of twin-born lambs is likely to have the greatest economic payoff when compared to other components of the reproductive process. See detailed results from stage 1 attached. This project also continues in 2017, if you are a producer interested in being involved, please contact Dr Serina Hancock or Amy Lockwood at Murdoch University for further information.
