March 2016

We had a great time at the South East Field Days at Lucindale, meeting with our South East clients and many other Dohne producers. Thanks for calling in to our display and taking the time to speak with us.
We head to the Karoonda Farm Fair for another display of our Dohnes at the beginning of April.

Shearing the ewes!
We shore our adult ewes before the majority of the rain fell in early March. We had 50mm by the 12th March. Green feed is appearing.
Wool quality was very pleasing, and seems cleaner than the last few years. Better care of pastures is the likely reason.
We had a wonderful group of young folk come in to shear and shed hand for us: it is good to have a stress free shed!
In preparation for offering some proven sires at the Global Dohne Conference in Dubbo in July this year, we have also shorn some specially selected sires. These are looking very well, and we can now feel that it is time to offer some top genetics to the rest of Australia and the overseas visitors who attend.
We have a presence at the South East Field Days at Lucindale in South Australia, a region with 5 million sheep. We welcome clients and friends to come and see us. We can also showcase our sheep to prospective buyers, and promote the benefits of the Dohne breed.
