Weaning Day

Saturday was weaning day – 28 beautiful lambs weaned and moved to the graveyard field. The pasture is growing nicely following our hay harvest. We did FAMACHA tests, weighed and then wormed all the lambs because last year we found that we had a huge spike in worm load in the week following weaning. We are trying to get a little jump on the worms this year, so we also wormed the ewes that scored a three this time. We kept the ewes and yearlings in the barn pasture since we are going to check everyone in a week instead of our usual two week schedule.

It was a very noisy weekend but everyone has pretty much adjusted now.
