Abstract

Triplets occur when lambing percentages exceed 130%. When triplets are left with their dam, survival is often <75%. Artificial rearing of one lamb from each set of triplets offers the chance to increase survival rates. But experience to date has frequently resulted in death rates of 10-30% of lambs. On the author's farm, ∼100 sets of triplets are born each year. In 2002, an artificial rearing system was put in place based on the Poukawa system. The smallest triplet from each set was removed for artificial rearing. In 2002 and 2003, when lambs were 3 to 5 weeks old, 25% died. A worldwide information search suggested that the disorder was possibly abomasal bloat. A Norwegian method of preparing soured milk replacer that had been demonstrated to limit abomasal bloat was adapted for New Zealand conditions. Lambs are fed cow colostrum...
