The early lamb mortality
eventually reduces the mutton production in country and accounts greater loss to the meat industry.
Here, we assessed the association between various factors (ewe breed, month of birth, year of birth, birth type, lamb sex and lamb birth weight) on lamb mortality
(within the first 60 days of life) using data collected in northern Turkey between 2006 and 2014.
Behaviour of the ewe and lamb at lambing and its relationship to lamb mortality
In our original flock of Katahdin ewes, our lamb mortality
rates were 10 to 20 percent for the first few years, which seemed OK until I looked at studies of commercial flocks that had mortality rates of more than 30 percent.
Over 70% of adult females in our study were liberated from incurring such costs longer than 8 w due to high lamb mortality
(Smith el al, 2014).
The flock scanned at 178% and had a successful indoor lambing with minimal lamb mortality
For example, for indicators of economic dependence of subsidies or lamb mortality
, the first quartile as optimal level  was considered.
Mild congenital goiter increases lamb mortality
in southern New South Wales.
Lesions in the central nervous system associated with perinatal lamb mortality
Similar lamb mortality
rates mean the top third flocks end up with 12 more lambs per 100 ewes to sell or keep as replacements, according to AHDB/Eblex senior analyst Carol Davis.
In fact, DEFRA itself has long said that fox predation is an "insignificant" factor in lamb mortality
