 Ideally, you want to scan between 70 and 90 days of pregnancy and certainly not less than 55 days or more than 100 days.

That's what the tiny wee writing says - not earlier than 55days and not later than 100days, ideally between 70 and 90 days.

Our scanner does our dozen - she charges a flat rate then so much per sheep. Hopefully you'll be able to find someone locally.
