With the increased amount of feed offered, the nanny will begin to put on weight. This will then signal the nanny’s body that she will be capable of raising more than one kid. In turn this will increase her ovulation rate, which results in a higher kidding percentage or more kids born per nanny.

Increasing the energy level of the nanny should continue throughout the breeding season until a few weeks after the billy is removed.
