The time to start thinking about fertility is now. Both ewes and rams will benefit from an all over "M.O.T."and focus on nutrition. Planning ahead is of course vital for the next season's success. Trying to reduce lambing season spread is good as this will lower labour costs, as it is more compact, and make nutrition decisions easier. Also all lambs will be more similar in age, making jobs such as vaccinations and worming easier to manage.
