The COVID-19 pandemic has continued to impact what we do. The second field day, Karoonda Farm Fair, was cancelled, as was SA Sheep Expo, where we were going to support the younger generation in learning about the sheep industry. Although, day-to-day activities have been affected to a lesser extent given Agriculture is classed as an essential service, we can continue our work.
We have continued improvements to our sheep yards, by installing hex-grating and gravel into our classing race, raising the sheep slightly. We had our 2019 April and June drops of young sheep classed. Fleece measurements are being taken prior to shearing next month. Some of these sheep will feature in our 2020 On-Property Auction on September 17th 2020.
Lambing has begun for 2020.
