A PEN FOR LAMBS.

A PEN FOR LAMBS. Where sheep are running thinly, all may be fed out, but where a comparatively large flock is kept for the acreage, it is as well to feed only the singles, and to keep the twins on for stores, as it never pays to sell half-fat lambs. To ensure their being ripe, pens can be made with hurdles to place the troughs in, and so constructed that the lambs can get in, but the ewes cannot—a few troughs round the outside, with a taste of corn to draw the ewes up, and as much inside as the lambs will clean up, for de- pend upon it, they will pay for it. Lambs that have been with corned ewes from the first soon learn to pick at the troughs, and are not much trouble to teach the way into the pens. Many use different lamb foods that are on the market, but anyone can make his own if he will but be at the trouble-oats, kibbled peas, a little bran or sharps, mo- lasses, feed of any good make, and, when prices will admit of it, an addition of cakes. Sayo cake well takes the place of peas, but, like them, muste used in moderation.
