    Why is pregnancy scanning important?

    PREGNANCY scanning of ewes has become an important tool in managing reproductive performance in ewe flocks. It enables producers to make informed management decisions that will improve productivity and profitability of their sheep enterprise.

    What are the benefits of pregnancy scanning

    - The ability to identify and manage ewes according to their pregnancy status.

    -  Dry ewes can be sold, re-mated or stocked at higher rates.

    -  Single and multiple bearing ewes can be managed according to nutritional requirements and enable optimisation of pasture/feed.

    -  It enables producers to calculate lamb losses between scanning and marking and also measure their flock’s reproductive potential.

    -  Enables producers to select the best lambing paddocks for cover and shelter.
