January 2017

Continuing rains slowed harvest down early this month; following rain events in December. We almost finished on January 12th, but were just two hours short when 13mm of rain came again. The next Monday was dry, allowing us to complete the task. With yet another significant rain event forecast for the Thursday, we planted a Summer forage crop, and received 27mm to get it going well.

Careful selection of rams to use for backup mating was done, and they were added to ewe mobs.
