Looking for a bit of advise on when to wean ram lambs away from ewes. They lambed mid April and starting to look a little bit lively now. Many thanks, Garry

We take our tup lambs out from the females in mid Aug, at 4 months.  We have never had unwanted pregnancy from tups at 4 months.

Thanks for reply. That's what I was hoping to hear as have a bit of stock fencing to sort out prior to separating. Still a bit of time left yet.

Cheers Garry
