Winter 2020 Lambs


Recommended Posts

Our lambing season is over and we will be taking a batch of ram lambs to the auction next week.  When we were working with some sheep this morning several of our yearlings from Mar-Apr were standing on the hill trying to see how we were torturing their flock mates.  The picture isn't the best but it shows their straight stocky lines.  Our first sheep weren't from the best stock but we immediately started working on improving them.  A lot of ewes you see will have a fairly thin depth to their chests which we did not want so we started culling for a stockier build with both thick chests and hips and the buyers love them.  The ram lambs are getting big enough that we want to get them gone before we start having unplanned lambs but the ewe lambs have a good enough reputation that we usually sell all of them off the farm as breeders rather than lamb chops.
