May 2020

There were three main focal points in May; seeding, lambing and shearing.

We plant our own cereal and pulse crops, including hay; doing all our own preparation as well. We have some planning assistance from a commercial Agronomist.

With lambing completed, we spent many days mothering up and tagging lambs, recording both parents, birth date and type. This forms the foundation of production recording.

We have fleece weighed all the early 2019 drop young sheep. This was the final piece of data required for submission to Sheep Genetics. We also make visual recordings of wool traits, and notes for our own use.
