« on: April 14, 2018, 08:21:39 pm »
Hi all well im glad to say that my hebs are lambing well. They were put to my uncles pure texel tup and throwing some noce twins and a single (all tups, soon to be weathers).
Was just wondering roughly how long does it take the texel x hebridean to finish?
Eg before this years tupping time?

Depends on your ground and the type of texel - but generally I can finish these on grass at 3-5 months of age and 38-42kg live weight. Poorer ground adds time.
A good cross and always comes lean so you can hold onto them.
ALso market spec lambs so sell well.
