Ram - 1
Ewes - 6
~Noticed 3 original ewes were bagging up on the 21st of May. Surprised because we didn't think the ram bred any of the sheep.
~Fernie gave birth to a ewe lamb on May 29th in the morning. Ewe lamb was named Fenella.
~ Flora gave birth to a ewe lamb on June 2nd in the morning. Ewe lamb was named Fiona.
~Juice gave birth to a ram lamb on June 2nd, late in the night. Ram lamb named Hatty Pants. Banded the ram lamb 3 weeks after birth.
~Newer 3 ewes did not get pregnant.
~Lamb crop of 2013 is 3 lambs total. We plan on keeping both ewe lambs and butchering the whether.
Started out the year with Gus and Penny. We plan on butchering Gus in the Fall of 2013, but have now decided to keep Penny as a breeding cow. She has turned out to be rather nice in conformation and disposition.
~Bought 6 breeding heifers in August of 2013 and they are to young to breed this Fall. We will most likely be breeding them in the Summer/Fall of 2014.
~#16 had pink eye and so doctored up her eye and gave her Bio Myecin 200 in hopes that her eye will heal. 8-18-2013 She is a high headed thing and once turned out of the chutes proceeded to jump 2 fences and got in with the renters steers. Will have to get her in soon to doctor her eye again.
~We may buy more heifers...
Started out with 25 chicks in February of 2013. Lost one the second night, butchered the rooster due to meanness, and lost two due to heat of the Summer.
~Currently have 21 chickens.
~Getting approximately 11-14 eggs a day
We are contemplating buying a few turkeys to harvest before Winter.
