We are raising our flock for easy care, we currently run between 50-60 breeding ewes. We value ewes that survive without intervention during all phases of production. We use NSIP data as part of our evaluation process to determine what lambs will be sold as breeding stock or at market. We collect fecal egg count as part of our 120-day data collection to better assess parasite resilience. Our flock is raised on pasture from early April to mid December. Once grazing has been exhausted ewes are provided hay and grain for late gestation through nursing.
