Chinese Merino sheep should be raised in pens according to their sex, age, strength, and physiological stage. The captive sheep mainly feed the crop Straw, crush the straw into 1 cm thick bran, and wet the thick bran with water before feeding, now feeding, each sheep feed the thick bran about 800 grams per day. In addition to adequate forage, feed concentrate and add micronutrients, minerals, and vitamins according to the condition of fat and physiological stage. 

For Ewes after breeding, each ewe feeds 450 grams of concentrate and 2 kilograms of Hay per day. high-quality herbage such as eupatorium and Ixeris is the key to their high-quality and efficient breeding, providing them with rich nutrition, it is also necessary to feed the pregnant Ewe.
