These lambs have grown at 325g/day from birth, an exceptional growth rate for twins. Jamie has shown us the leader-follower system in previous videos and discusses how he is managing their grazing post-weaning to keep them growing well. His post-weaning growth targets are 250-300g/day, for this they key is not grazing them too low. Pasture quality will not deteriorate as fast at this time of the year therefore he does not have the same pressure to keep grass covers low.
