    First go at paddock grazing

    Got a 9 acre field that’s not been grazed since September. I can split it roughly into quarters with electric and have a mob of 140 ewes on the first quarter. It got a good cover of wet lush autumn grass but not sure how bare to take it for the winter and next growing season.

    Currently shearing in Norway. Was on farms yesterday shearing breeding stock and when doing the ewe lambs the farmer asked me to cut off any secondary pairs of teats. His reason being that lambs want to latch onto them instead of the milking teats.
