Lambs are decent but aye it'll be very average numbers wise I think.1 left here! Please tell me its not just me! - it's been a pretty average lambing.
No records broken for numbers of lambs and now not much grass growing..
Mine are looking the same, singles are looking ok but twins are lacking behind, took a bail out but sheep being sheep there not interested, more grass in garden but just can't fit 500 un lambs it and OH wouldnt be reet impressed . Might cut mi bun supply offThought my lambs were looking very poor out in the fields this past week with little grass under them
had them in today for scabivax & was pleasantly surprised how well they looked & handled close up
Stv weather said that no real warmth till second half of May in Scotland, iv 80 bales of silage left over, l think l, ll need them next winter for sure.
I bought 10t of Beet pulp and fed ewes late that year. But I don't recall it being as relentlessly cold as this year? Things would be improving by now, then.2013 was a long cold spring, we were taking hay to sheep well into May
Remember clipping hoggs at a place once. Tipped hogg out race and got to first hind leg and realised she was hanging a lamb! Got her lambed with a live lamb then finished clipping her.
