MarchThe worrying month! We are praying for grass and hoping that spring comes and all the good weather is not just in March!  Some years I've put urea on early but other years it's been too wet.  Some years I have just fluked the ewes and other years I have fluked and wormed them. I vaccinate the ewes on our hill farm at Todstone for pulpy kidney as we've had a slight problem there for the last 2 years.  We have not vaccinated the rest of the ewes for seven years now.  We crutch the ewes pre-lambing. This keeps ewes clean until shearing.  At the end of March ewes are put into the lambing paddocks.
