AprilThe best month to go on holiday............if I got rid of my cows! Ewes are set stocked depending on the amount of grass (the most 10 /acre).  Singles remain on ground that has been heavily stocked through winter and they still thrive and grow great lambs.  I am always amazed at how little spring grass stock needs to thrive on.  I check my 1000 ewes once a day.  Most of my time is taken up calving 300 cows and feeding them.  Lambing is over in 2 weeks. You should never have too much fun!  We dock lambs in their lambing paddocks, taking blood from stud lambs for DNA parenting and gene selection.
