When building a creep feeding area, use a Creep Gate to prevent ewes from eating the lambs’ feed.
When you are lambing in a barn and want to set up a creep feeding area, hang a Premier Heat Lamp with a 175 Watt Bulb hanging over the pen. The light and heat it provides will attract the lambs to the creep feeding area and they will begin to eat creep feed.
Bucket Teat Unit is used for providing orphan lambs with a source of milk. Starting a lamb as soon as possible on dry feed will help produce the most $$ per lamb.
