My DD has her first 4-H lamb and is following the 4-H leaders instructions on how to raise it. It includes the following: 1- being kept in a small 10' X 15' area so it can't free graze in the 1/2 acre pasture. 2- eating only the "complete" lamb show feed @ $13 per 50# bag. 3- having only a very small handful of hay each day. They say it can't be in the pasture because it will develop a "hay belly". Our fair is not until April. If it is on pasture until a month or 2 before that, won't we be able to get rid of the "hay belly". I hate seeing her in the small area when she seems much happier in the pasture w/ some of the other animals. I don't want to go against the grain too much, but this system seems a little unnatural. Any of your experiences would be appreciated.
