"But a ewe in the last month or so of lambing, carrying twins or triplets, when her energy demand is very high, can develop something called twin lamb disease.
"That means that, instead of having a week's window to save sheep trapped beneath the snow, you have seen a situation where farmers only have a 24 to 48-hour period to safely dig out their stock, before exhaustion brings on twin lamb disease and causes a quick death."
Avoid twin lamb disease by ensuring late pregnant ewes have feed every four hours.
The two most common metabolic diseases of sheep in late pregnancy are pregnancy toxaemia (twin lamb disease) and hypocalcaemia (milk fever).
Gwyn Roberts, of Blaen y Nant Farm, Nant Ffrancon, Ogwen Valley, said three ewes which died of twin lamb disease have been lying in his farmyard for 11 days awaiting collection.
"Signs are loss of body condition, poorer fertility, mastitis, increased twin lamb disease, smaller and weaker lambs born leading to increased mortality, lower volume of and poorer-quality colostrum and milk, leading to reduced lamb growth rates."
Oral electrolyte solutions Twin lamb disease drench.
THE most common causes of recumbency in pregnant sheep are pregnancy toxaemia (twin lamb disease), hypocalcaemia (milk fever) and listeriosis.
Pregnancy toxaemia of ewes (twin lamb disease) is an acute metabolic disorder occurring during late pregnancy, so as we approach lambing now is the time to be on our guard.
This is leading to an energy imbalance and more twin lamb disease (pregnancy toxaemia).
For example, it gives a reminder of exactly how much energy a ewe requires in the final 10 weeks of pregnancy to prevent twin lamb disease and goes on to state the benefits of not only scanning, but also body condition scoring ewes.
