The objective of this study was to evaluate the milk production of Hampshire Down and Ile de France ewes, six or eight teeth old, nursing male or female lambs, as well as to evaluate the effect of litter size on milk production of Hampshire Down ewes. This study was carried out at the Farm School of the State University of Londrina, Brazil, between June and December, 2001. The animals fed on a Coastcross (Cynodon dactilon (L) Pears) pasture, and received food supplementation daily, 2 kg of corn silage and 100 g of grounded corn, from June to September. Milk production was estimated, by hand milking the ewes with the aid of 3 IU of oxitocyn injection, at days 14, 28, 42, 56, 70 and 84 of lactation. There were no differences (P>0.05) in milk production and in ewe weights between breeds, ages, and between Hampshire Down ewes nursing twins or singlets. But, ew s nursing male lambs had greater (P0,05) para a produção de leite e para pesos das ovelhas entre as raças envolvidas, entre as idades das ovelhas e entre ovelhas Hampshire Down amamentando um ou dois cordeiros. Porém, em relação ao sexo dos cordeiros, ovelhas amamentandomachos tiveram uma produção média diária de leite significativamente (P
