September

SeptemberThe ewes are spread around the farm, giving them plenty of space and grass, time to flesh up for tupping and on-coming winter.  Large numbers of lambs are sold dead weight during September. Feeding them lamb creep has meant that more lambs are sold in September rather than October. Stud lambs have their 2nd weigh-in and are scanned for loin muscle and fat cover. It's also the time of dung sampling for FEC; count the joys......the things I do for the progress of my flock!
