Lambing 2018 came and went successfully. For the first time ever we had external help which was fantastic and it proved that lambing could be less stressful and fun!
The lambs were kept inside for the first four weeks due to the dreadful weather conditions but following turnout the February lambs got badly battered by the weather that followed. As a result the March born lambs initially grew the best. However the cream always floats to the top and the February born lambs are recovering fast and it will be interesting to see the results at scanning time with weights.
At times like these I never fail to be impressed with nature and how resilient lambs can be to environmental factors.
