|Wild Rose Farm 2012 Ewe Lambs|
We made some final decisions today on which lambs we're going to keep for the flock. We've been selling some freezer lambs lately too. They were really nice lambs, but many of them are singles, so they've grown quickly and were ready for market. We ended up choosing 5 registered Rambouillet & 4 Dorset x Rambouillet ewe lambs. We look at the lambing history of the dam as well as her micron test & wool staple length when we pick out lambs. Of course, we'd love to keep more, but every farm has a limit on how many animals you can keep (!). We also kept a ram lamb out of one of our older ewes. She has been a consistent twinner.
