This week is time to plan for the next breeding group. Because this is April, its almost out-of-season for sheep here in Canada (they are short-day breeders).
Although I just finished lambing out my natural bred ewes from the fall, I’m back to my typical breeding system of using CIDRS (a Controlled Internal Drug Release devise, which releases progesterone ) to help synchronise my lambing groups again.
April and July are the two weaker months of conception, so I use the CIDR program with the addition of PMSG (Pregnant Mare Serum Gonadotrophin) to help boost my chances for ewes to come into heat. #CIDR #sheep #breeding #synchronizing
