Well... its that time of year. When my full time job of sheep farming is blended with field work.
This weekend had me observing the latest join up, which left me wondering if I have a dud ram...
I spent quite a few hours on the cultivator prepping the ground for corn planting, which we actually began Saturday!!
Thanks to editing, and the power of my audience, I noticed in my last video I had a ewe limping... So, I went on a hunt. But couldn't find her!
So hoping she was just stiff, but will keep an eye out!

I admire so much all the hard work you do, while Im retired and the most I do most days are dinner, dishes, laundry and cleaning the cat box. I can't help it, the sheep are so calming and the babies are so stinking cute! I love it when they start running and jumping, even on top of some other ewe mom. I have another topic for you. I'd like to learn more about the rams. 1. How old do they have to be in order to breed? 2. How many lambs do rams contribute life to, in a normal lifespan? 3. Do the rams always stay in the other barn, until breeding time or do they ever go out in the fields? 4. What does it cost to keep a ram for a year? 5. What does an adult ram weigh? And if underweight at breeding time, does he still get some girl time? 6. Do the rams try to push you around when you go to take them back to the other barn? 7. You said recently that you are eating more lamb at home right now, do you cull rams, ewes, or take from the selling group? 8. Are there any illnesses that affect the rams only? That's about what I wonder.... I'm sure there are a lot more things to know. Have a great day!

Might not be a bad idea to have the vet test that ram when you have them gathered for shearing. You don't want to waste any more time with him if he isn't going to do his job

Been daily watching for 12 mths...subscribed yesterday. Rams currently servicing, imagine for a minute a sweater under a hoodie...you and Mark having a rapid 2 minute moment then 5 minutes later asking "go again"...i could imagine the answer...moral of the story is shear the rams!!!! Am incensed any livestock was introduced to the farm without drenching, licing and 48 hrs quarantine at minimum rather than taking risk of loosing the entire flock. Stock rams....strongly urge a re-think on keeping any at all, wiser genetically to buy in. Back to bad preggie scan....more info required as I forget, but some sheep believe it or not are monogomists and wont take very well to a new ram. Ram numbers, 1:3 and 1:5 after cidr's??????.... we run 1:50!!! Too many times a ewe gains favour with every Ram meaning ineffective use of rams, plus they fight for the favour. If breeding actually seen and time and space at barn end available....remove the ewe....she needs no more attention wasting ram energy. Enjoy your vids watching the learning curve....keep at it, aussie sheep farmer

Might have to put a blue dot on the butts of the rams and see if that “inactive” ram is up to anything else.

Do you have to worry about lice if the sheep can get it? Are they the same as the lice that humans worry about?

At 24:13 your limping ewe - watch the head bob. I think the number is 48 or 38 or 46?? It is a left front leg... I think.

When you were doing a major ewe move, the herd went really fast around the barrier and one ewe face planted bad. Maybe it's her limping and the video will help you find her...

Drain tiling is a deceiving title. I watched a video on what it is and how it is implemented (very informative). Drain tubes, what a great idea.

I have the doubts; I am a nomadic person and have lot of sheep, my problem is that we live in the Tibetan plateaus and dont the barn like this, always grazing seasonally and it's super traditional but I want to raise sheep like you do, so do you have any suggestion how do I do (the sheep breed is also different from of yours though)?

Yea the limping ewe in the last video was laying down, you could see it at the edge of the screen and she got up and limped over a little bit..might've just layed on her leg for a little too long! Hope all is doing well!

When you say you did 80 acres and still have a 110 acre field to do. Is that all part of your property? Or are the fields leased? How big is your property all together?. And if its leased? Do the fields border your property?

Hi Sandi, Love your videos for sure. Reminds me of when we farmed when I was younger. I love all you do and the lambnados are so heart warming. :) I have a couple screen shots of the limping ewe you are looking for... I couldn't get a good view of the number on her but it's this one I've circled in this image right in front of the black and white lamb: imgur.com/uPZKEwv If you watch her in the video, you'll see her head bob up and down while she walks. I reviewed over and over a few times (I can't figure out my slow speed) and it's either 28 or 38, I can't quite tell. I can definitely see the number 8, but the other 2 or 3 seems smeared. Here's another shot of her: imgur.com/0gJd04k

You mentioned you wish we were able to walk alongside you in the barn. That would be awesome! I studied animal agriculture in college and then proceeded to work in human medicine for the next 15 years. It wasn’t until my husband lost his job and we moved out of state that I got the chance to use my actual degree. We started a small family farm raising meat chickens(200 at a time), pigs(3 sows and a boar), some lambs and turkeys 🦃 here and there as well as rabbits. We also raised plant starts and vegetables for Farmers Market. It’s incredibly hard work. We used to say that farmers either love what they do or they’re crazy. You clearly love what you do. It would be great fun to spend the day shadowing you. Keep up the good work. And don’t listen to the nasties. Your animals are well loved and well taken care of. I worked on or around farms enough to know the difference.

Why do you mark the rams on the back of the head?
MobyDicksWife 5 ամիս առաջ
She keeps all the rams together when they are not breeding. She splits them into groups to prevent inbreeding. If an ewe was fathered by a Ram breed X, she is put into a groups of other ewes with the same breeding. Sandi then sorts the rams also into groups of the different breeds so they can be put in with the right ewe group. The rams are marked on the back of their heads when Sandi is sorting them, a different colour for each breed.

Don't worry about the dusty face. Many women pay for a good mud mask, you get yours for free, another fringe benefit. Wondering about the lambs you took in to your abattoir, how fast will you get the meat back and what are the main things you request when cutting? Silly question but I am not familiar with lamb cuts other than chops, leg of lamb and "lamb burgers" I heard Jess mention in a video.

I wonder if the dud ram just doesn't understand the kind of fun he's supposed to be having. So, will you add another ram to make up for Dudsy? Have you ever made a corn maze to make an extra income in the fall? There is a family here that uses a GPS and a pre-selected "picture" and you plant the picture, not planting the maze part. It's a huge fundraiser here that supports an organization helping people with disabilities. I do face painting for them every autumn...maybe not this year I think. :(

Hi Sandi. Question. If a person can afford to build a barn like you have, do you know of any reason why they wouldn’t? I remember you saying some other farmers have made negative comments about you having the barn. If it were me I’d rather have the barn. It seems you have practically no predator threats, the sheep, and you, don’t have to contend with rain, snow much. The incidence of bugs has to be a lot less in the barn which keeps the sheep healthier. I guess the person without the barn has a higher return, but at what cost? Pat

I did see the ewe limp a bit yestarday when she walked but I think it could have been that her leg fell asleep? Kind of like if we were to sit on our leg for a while and it falls asleep from the lack of blood flow. She did get up kind of quick

If your cameras in the barn can record go back and run through the footage on your blue group and see if they are breeding when you aren't there. :)

For the completely clueless (that'd be me before looking it up), tiling a field means putting several plastic drain pipes with small holes into the ground about 3-4 feet deep and 20+/- feet apart. The lines meet up to a main line that moves the water out. Kind of a French drain upside down - collecting versus dispersing water. Check out the AgPHD. Love ya Sandy! 💖🐑🐏

The “ radel “ is a heavy paste type paint. It will last for several weeks on the Rams breast plate.
Rob N
Rob N 5 ամիս առաջ
You should put the paint “ it’s called Radel “ on the breast plate of the Rams. Not on your sheep. Each time the ram mounts a sheep the pain transfers from the Rams breastplate the sheets back. There can be no mistakes using this method.
