Second Look at our 2020 Lamb Crop

by Cindy on March 1, 2020

in Uncategorized

As of March 1, we still have several ewes to deliver, but most of our 2020 lambs are moto-crossing around the barn. Now that they have their USDA tags in, they are easier to identify if they happen to be standing still.  Not all the lambs are represented here, and not all of these are for sale,but it is a quick peek at what we have so far and how they are growing.

We started lambing on January 19, and as of this posting on February 4, we have 26 lambs, with around 16 ewes to go. Here is a quick look at some of the lambs we have so far. None of them have their scrapie tags in yet, so they are hard to identify in photos (our small farm tag number faces backwards).
