Weaning lambs
« on: May 29, 2018, 09:18:49 pm »
I saw a post on this the other day but can't find it.  Just wondering when I can wean my lambs?  I have someone who is interested in buying them all and wants them asap to mow her grass.  They were born between 10th and 19th March and are all well grown and eating creep.  I'd prefer to keep the ewes but don't want to miss out on a sale.

Could you sell the lambs and loan the ewes?  Just a thought.

Don't wrestle with pigs, they will love it and you will just get all muddy.

Let go of who you are and become who you are meant to be.
