Introduced at the 2016 Sheep Industry Convention, Productivity Best Practices are designed to help U.S. lamb producers increase productivity while reducing costs. We will continue to add more information, so please check back often! Here are highlights of this new tool:

  • Lambs sold per ewe is the biggest influence on profitability, and implementing the new Best Practices to Increase Your Lamb Crop gives sheep producers more control over price volatility, according to the panel of sheep producers and production experts who developed the best practices.
  • The Best Practices Resource Database is a searchable listing of existing resources that address topics of importance, such as animal handling, environmental stewardship, genetics and selection, meat quality, reproduction management and more. It includes a User’s Guide.
