Choosing the ideal market lamb is an important step in a successful 4-H livestock project. The next step is developing the best feeding program possible.

A poor nutrition program can cause deficiencies and imbalances, which hurt your lamb’s health and body condition.

You can learn about ways to feed lambs from many different sources. Developing a ration that works for your program may take some time but will hopefully pay off in the show ring. This nutritional guide will tell you the basics of lamb nutrition and help you design the best feeding program for your lambs.
