Daily feeds are really not necessary. Mine only get a bit when I need them to come to me, works even if it is only once a month! Give the sheep some credit - they remember!

I would try store it for this winter, its a bit of a crime to feed them this time of year unless you dont have much ground !! mine are on grass and a mineral lick which takes care of any lack of mins and vits.
