Short summary
We aimed to evaluate the effects of premating ewe weight and age on ewe reproductive performance and lamb growth and survival in Central Anatolian Merino sheep. Multiple birth rate, birth weight, and growth performance of the lambs increased proportionally with the increase in live weight of the ewes prior to mating. Therefore, it is important to increase the live weight of lambs at puberty and to select ewes that attain a higher premating weight for breeding.
