It continues to be a dry winter allowing good feed utilisation. Stock are in good condition and we have pregnancy tested our maiden hinds (first fawners) and the hinds that were artificially inseminated. We were pleased with the result especially the 150 first calvers that achieved a very pleasing 94% in calf rate. Weaner stags have now come off kale and onto autumn sown pastures. In addition they have access to an Advantage Grain Feeder allowing ad lib access to barley as we seek to maximise their spring growth rates. Meanwhile lambing is now underway with the 2 tooths being ahead of schedule - looks like there was a "real" ram amongst the teaser rams in March. It does explain the relatively low scanning of the 2 tooths - they had taken to the ram a cycle sooner than intended. All other ewes have now been set stocked including 5-8 triplet bearing ewes mixed in with the twin bearing ewes in every lambing paddock.
