DECIDING WHO WILL BECOME A REPLACEMENT EWE LAMB.
In this video, I discuss what goes into my replacement ewe strategy. It's a question that comes up often, and this is how I do it on my farm...
Here is a list of the top things I look for...
1. genetics of mom and dad
2. average daily gain of lamb (not too big, not too small)
4. confirmation, frame of animal
5. performance of ewe's maternal traits
6. notes I wrote down at lambing session
7. any issues with mom? masititis? health concerns?
Let me apologize for the video quality of this episode.
I barely slept last night trying to figure out how to save this video as its actually got some good info in it.
So this morning, I did lots of editing by adding B roll to the terrible focusing of my close-up portions. I guess my camera is now officially retired.
