Lots of Lamb, coming and going

November 19, 2014

Our rams are busy now. We weighed and sorted all the lambs and sent the young replacement ewes (below) to meet one ram, while sending the second Hampshire ram to breed the experienced ewes.

Bob let that group into the alfalfa field behind the barn where they found an open gate and got into my garden. Something had to eat the frozen Brussels sprouts.

The heaviest wethers went to the auction market where they averaged 125 pounds and got the top price of $1.60 a pound.

On Monday, we shipped boxes of frozen lamb on dry ice to family in Maryland and North Carolina. Merry Christmas!

New baby lambs are due in April.
