Check your Lambing Report!

As part of the LambPlus programme, farmers record a variety of key events such as lambing information.

Genetic evaluations and management reports are generated using key performance information entered, and €urostar Index’s are then produced for all animals involved in the LambPlus programme.

The information displayed give breeders a detailed report that helps to keep all the data updated and to make better breeding decisions.

Why to use the Lambing Report?

  • At this moment of the year is crucial to record all the lambing events before the 30th of April for getting Eurostars this season.
  • We can check easily if there is missing information, i.e.; lambs not recorded, sires not recorded, traits not recorded (lambing difficulty, birth weights), mortality, rearing type, etc.
  • It’s easy to download and work using excel.
  • Gives us an overview of our flock data dispersion.
  • We can focus on what we want to improve, selection, and breeding goals.

Information displayed


  • Ewes in Flock” is the count of breeding females in the flock during that year. Breeding females include ewe lambs (ie, ewe lambs over 260 days of age)
  • Ewes Lambed” is a count of the number of ewes recorded as lambing down
  • Abortions” & “Barrens” are important to record as it allows the the database to see the ewe is still active in the flock for the year
  • Not Mated” is the count of ewes not mated, this option is only available for ewe lambs
  • Unaccounted for Ewes” are ewes that have no events recording at lambing time
  • Sires used” shows the number of rams used in the flock during the season


Next to the “Ewes” graph, you will find a complete report of the “Lambs” recorded.

Check that every lamb has its information. E.g.:

  • Lambs with Sire (111 of 112 Lambs)
  • Birth Weight (111 of 112 Lambs).
