Plan for the whole Lifecycle with Downland

Helping Maximise Your Lambing with our Neonatal Range.

In the natural environment, lambs are completely dependent on the care of the ewe after birth. Poor mothering, either due to behaviour or milking ability, can cause unnecessary stress on the young or threaten their survival. Combine this with a harsh wet or windy environment, dirty or damp bedding and the probability of good healthy development of “neonatal” young, are slim.

Throughout this time, interventions can be made to help ensure good development, growth and profitability. Particularly when we consider the dependence on the ewe starts prior to birth.

To help with the management of lambs throughout their neonatal lives, Downland has developed a comprehensive range of Lamb Force nutritional products so that every intervention counts. The range is accompanied by lifecycle tools and best advice from Downland franchisee’s to ensure the products can be fed when the animals need them most.

Together the products help to push back on the common farm challenges which threaten lambs. They focus on key areas of performance lag via natural colostrum enrichment, energy metabolism, to reduce risk of lethargy, and healthy gut development.
