    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. 😂

    What breed for outdoor lambing

    I think this lambing has definitely made me think about the future of me shepherding sheep. I had a night-mere indoor lambing mules this year for a flock I shepherd. I think they will have to go over the next couple of year and be replaced with a closed flock of shedding ewes. One of the big...

    Indoor lambing set up costs

    Before lambing me and my mate where crutching ewe lambs on big racing stables, we couldn’t believe how the girls swarmed around the young jockeys. I said all the girls want a bit jockey but poor old shep doesn’t get any. I now seems I was wrong and they do want a price of old shep.

    I’m not going to say. But when you get it in your indoor ewes you know about it. Got a skip coming today to fill with dead ewes and have sent 40 ewes out with not lambs because they have bad bags

    That not quit the job. The real advantage to lambing outside is the reduction in diseases. The problem that I’ve got in my inside flock (that I wouldn’t with on my worst enemy) has so far not spread the same outside. This is a problem that is coming to all people who buy sheep and lamb inside.
