    Ah a “shepherds lawn” as my dad would call it. The only grass on a sheep farm in April is always the bloody lawn! 😂

    One farm that had fert has loads of grass, but everywhere else the grass is blue.

    My mate sold some old mules with 4 week old badly bred texel lambs for £90 a life yesterday. Iv never heard him so happy when he rang me to say. I cant see anyone getting out of them at a profit, its a long way and a lot of cost before those lambs can be sold.

    All mules. Some ok. But 10 real dogs that made £100, all where by far the worst sheep I have ever sold and the second highest price.

    Had a good day today. Weaned 40 broken mouth ewes that I paid for £50 in August. Culled all the ewes and they made £108 average and have left me with 70 store lambs. Very happy

    So I can get away from buying draft ewes.

    Beltex ram??

    He seems pretty good at the moment. Never went lame or lost condition in the winter. I used him on 120 ewes (3 groups of 40 back to back tupping). I know about tups who can get out, I buy 3 welsh tup lambs off my neighbor every November to tup welsh draft ewes, but I have to kill them at the end...

    Which Ewes to Cull

    I just had 2 welsh ewes and 4 lambs grazing the side of the road. There now locked in the shed and will go to market tomorrow, I don’t want them to teach the other 60 ewes and lambs how to run at 3 strand electric.

    I know they where an amazing trade last week at Cirencester. Averaged £139 I think and only 2 pens under £100. So if it’s anything like that I should be able to get my £55. 😂

    It wouldn’t be far on the man who buys them.

    You must have better sheep than me. I always think if I can clear £55 head I’ve had a good day. 😂
