The Villager

The ewes have been scanned to see if they are in lamb and how many lambs they have. When the flock size was much larger this made a lot of sense but in recent years the cost outweighed the benefits because the operator travelled from a long way away. However we now have someone who works locally and has purchased the equipment so it makes sense again. The results are as follows – 4 barren (including Cyclops the one eyed ewe), 14 with singles and 30 with 2 or more lambs. The ewes are sprayed with different colour marks so that we know which category each falls into. Knowing the number of lambs in each ewe is a great help at lambing time because if a lamb needs to be orphaned onto a ewe, because it is one of three or mum has little milk, then a single marked ewe that starts lambing can usually be persuaded that she has had 2 lambs not 1. ...
