In winter, the farmers mostly feed the goats with rough feed such as withered grass and autumn stored straw. The nutrition and palatability are not as good as the forages in summer and autumn. In addition, the temperature is lower, the energy consumption in the sheep is faster, and the mood of the sheep is gradually weakened. The decline in disease resistance and susceptibility to epidemics will lead to the death of ewes or some sheep. In order to ensure the safe wintering of the flock, it is necessary to scientifically raise, carefully manage, and start from the following aspects:
First, protect against cold and frost. The first is to do a good job of checking the sheep's shed for air leakage, etc., to prevent rain and rain and cold air from blowing directly into the shed at night. The second is to do a good job of protecting the cold and warmth of postpartum ewes and lambs. If necessary, bedding should be added to increase the ability to prevent cold and ensure the postpartum ewes and lambs safely overwinter.
Second, supplementary feeding of the bad stuff. Due to the cold winter, the sheep consume a lot of energy. When the sheep are supplemented with green forage after harvesting, the sheep must be supplemented with an appropriate amount of concentrate, such as corn, rice flour, and fine bran.
Third, the ewe fetal. Most female goats are pregnant during winter, so care should be taken to protect the fetus. In feeding, we should pay attention to the quality of forages, and do not feed moldy, deteriorated and frosted forages. In grazing, unfavorable actions such as squeezing, scaring , and ditching are strictly prohibited to prevent pregnancy ewes from flowing.
Fourth, warm water supply. Due to the cold weather, the flocks are supplied with warm saline water during grazing and grazing in winter to allow the flocks to drink enough to prevent the flocks from drinking cold water and water with ice residue.
Five, timely immunization. Winter temperatures are low and the temperature difference between day and night is high. Therefore, the immunization procedures and technical requirements must be made in advance to vaccinate against diseases such as foot-and-mouth disease, sheep triple prevention and five preventions, and to prevent multiple winter diseases in advance, improve sheep immunity, establish an effective immune barrier, and ensure the health of sheep. For postpartum ewes and weaned lambs, timely supplementation and exemption of vaccines should be made.
