Sheep scanning
« on: November 10, 2008, 09:26:51 pm »
Anyone out there who knows someone who can scan my sheep regularly every year as it is getting to be a bit of a bug bear when you don't know what ewes are expecting what.

My vets advise as my Ryeland mostly have twins to feed for twins, but that does not help when about 30% of the flock have singles and the lambs can protentionally be too big causing further problems  :sheep: :sheep:
