May 2014

Our young sheep have been classed ready for shearing in early June. The Classer’s comments were favourable and mentioned our progress and obvious concentration on breeding sheep with good feet.

We hosted a Bred Well Fed Well workshop with 20 participants. Bred Well Fed Well is an aspect of Making More from Sheep, and is funded by contributions from AWI and MLA. What made this workshop remarkable was that most participants were under 35 years old and nearly half were young women involved in farming businesses. We are very excited about the health of sheep enterprises in our area.

Our main lambing is complete, and with an early break to the season, lambs are off to a good start.
