|Recently had my state fair and my lambs are weighing in the 145 ish area. Have had some people tell me they have a good future in them. So my question is how do you go about feeding and exercising to get ready for shows in a couple months such as north american. I don't have any experience holding one back. I've always pushed hard to get ready for state. |

|A lot depends on the type of lamb. How much frame, how much finish, present age, how and what you've been feeding. if you've got some more info and possibly some pictures, I can help. Also tons of info and opinions already on this site if you use the search feature.|

|I agree with Lee that there are several strategies how to hold a lamb. Given that you seem to not have much experience in this and not much access to local advice I'd suggest reducing the risk by using a well known feed company's program like Honor. Review products Champion Drive and Depth Charge sell sheets.
Holding lambs is facilitated by weighing the lambs at least twice if not three times a week. That way if your not getting the results you want you adjust the inputs.
