Yes October lambs on cover crops.October lambers being grazed on cover crops, stubble crops etc? Aiming for each ewe to rear triplets??
I speak to an Australian over Facebook who has a dorper based shedding composite which lambs every 6 months.When I was at Harper (mid '80's) they had a flock of Finn x Dorset that lambed every 8 months (ie 3 times in 2 years). It seemed a massively expensive system, involving sponging and even some AI. I'm sure that they will have thought about/ given a try to lambing the every 6 months. It never caught on for some reason.
Mind you at today's lamb prices it might be worth the cost and hassle.
be wary of recorded ones , its not the recording as such just a lot were breeding for leanness and growth and IDF was put in (shh) they are very wary / wild sheep to handle , I think David Rossiter uses some NZ blood which is fine and prob more functional for what your looking for .if you can find stock from them , it might be worth ringing him see who buys his rams, there are a few big flocks of commercial ewes that supply waitrose contracts aroundYep! And put a bit of shape in the dairy ewes
