This project will monitor the process of lambing and lamb survival through the use of remote weighing stations and EID, and apps for collection of lambing data. Data obtained from these stations can be used to quantify the effects of weather and nutrition on the general health of the ewe and lamb and if their relationship and behaviour has any effect on the rate of lamb growth.
