How long after weaning can ewes go back to lambs?
« on: August 26, 2015, 11:24:04 am »
Hi everyone,  :wave:I haven't been here for yonks! I weaned my lambs 3 weeks ago, can I assume the ewes have dried up enough to now share a field with the lambs again? Thanks ;D

I would wait a couple of weeks longer, a good maternal ewe and determined lamb will start milk flowing again.
