    Terminals for shedders

    Have tried Southdown’s. Too variable and wooly for me.

    Terminals for shedders

    Don’t we all 😂 Woukd think a down breed base would make life tough. Black headed dorper throws coloured lambs over white ewes. It’s the reason the Suffolk is the biggest terminal in NZ.

    Last year Tuesday was dead and so was Thursday but this year Tuesday was lively and Thursday better than before. I go for three nights, it’s my annual holiday!!

    Agree with this. Really really enjoyed it, but def a bit of a different vibe creeping in. Slightly more of a 'county show' feel at times. Possibly just due to more event/trade stand 'staff' about and a lower % of farmers making up the attendees. Still, as said very good fun and educational as...

    I think I have have a few beers and bump into George, and he makes a smart arsed comment. It’ll probably be unfortunate 😂

    Gay people make up 2.7 % of the population, is George suggesting we should make their representation and rights in society proportional ? He talks sh*t and tries to sound clever.

    Part of it. Ended up walking out, one of two sessions I walked out of before I said something rude! The other was by an estate owner talking of the wonders of rewilding and glossing over all of the tenants they had booted out to make way for two beavers which were of negligible positive impact.

    I don’t know why we give these folk airspace. I can’t imagine them inviting one of us to speak to them and share our thoughts. They would be slinging abuse out way. Same as Derek Gow - the man skates regenerative agriculture and calls it a joke ..... so why give him a headline a lot and chance...

    Easycare sheep experiment

    Some of those rams on sale are on a mega ration and creep fed from early days until sold as shearlings.

    Easycare sheep experiment

    I seem to upset folk on there to. It is a skill I have! No one was a fan of the feeding question 😂

    Sheeps feet

    That’s a fit enough point. I tend to either get ignored or called a c.*nt no matter what I achieve so I think I’ve just got a little bit harsher. I am also perpetually tired. Probably something I need to work on. I should probably apologise to the OP. No offence intended and as you say it is...

    Easycare sheep experiment

    That wasn’t aimed at you at all, so don’t get offended. But I have seen plenty of first x texel shedders which shed well enough and surprisingly why do have better carcass traits than the other shedders..... but then usually have a lower scan and lower lamb survival. Due to harder birthing...
