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)
3. prolificacy
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.

You are not repetitive at all!! If the first lamb you weighed checked off all the boxes for you to keep it, why didn’t you? Was it simply because of the age and when it would be ready to be bred?

This is always the hardest part for my brain to "make sense" of. You do a great job explaining your methods, my brain just never seems to grasp it! Then I think, well, as long as it makes sense to Sandi, all is well in the world.

One of my least favorite jobs, picking stones. In my case, it is picking stones out of the riding arenas so our horses don't get stone bruises or land on one after a jump. I am glad I don't have to make those decisions on lambs. I try not to get attached to the horses, but it still happens and they are only going to a good new home. It is always lovely to see you and your daughter working together so well. Stay safe!

Spoiler Alert . Coke has Carbonated water Sugar (which can be sucrose or high-fructose corn syrup) Caffeine Phosphoric acid v. caramel (E150d) Natural flavorings (which include coca leaf extract) I call your attention to Phosphoric acid in order to haul this in the USA in bulk form (Bag in box) A truck driver has to label the load with a class 8 hazard placker which is corrosives which has the same class as battery acid that is why it is such a good cleaner I know this because I have hauled it this way before for Coke a cola .

You say you like keeping your spring born ewe lambs as replacement, but typically if your trying for the out of season breeding. Keeping ewes from that lambing, they will breed back better. Fall born lambs will breed for fall lambs better than a spring born lamb.

I dont know it hurts more and more for every group going to the butcher, I get so attached to these lambs and knowing they are basically born to die right away without any freedom or lifespan makes me sad, I am in love with Sandi and these videos but it just hit a sore spot now, so I will have to unsubscribe 😰😰 wish you all luck and happiness Sandi Thank you for the lamb videos which has indeed brought happiness to me at times❤️❤️

We grew potatoes in the north, which stays under zero and gets frost sometimes till the first week of june. We typically start planting potatoes a good one or two weeks before the first week of june. They will be slow to come up, but once they're up they get a huge head start.

I love to see you not keeping the heaviest average daily gain. We are in the Angus business and right now bigger is better, not sure that's gonna be good for our breed long term. Even with unlimited inputs like your system needs moderate-sized productive females.

Hi Sandi! I live in north GTA and I wish I could show you an easier way to clean your lines,, but I tell you instead. get a small pond pump (garden center or Canadian Tire) and a decent sized container/bucket of water and a large bottle of hydrogen peroxide. Get a pump that had different sized fittings/adapters , or take your hose with you. Put your hose on the pump nozzle and put it in a large bucket of water with the peroxide. Plug in the pump. Let it run and soon you will have the freshest cleanest hose lines. A lot less effort than trying to dissolve the crud.
Cheryl Berry
Cheryl Berry 5 ամիս առաջ
Make sure you put the pump and ALL the hosing in the container so it just keeps circulating or you'll just empty your bucket of all your cleaning solution!
Cheryl Berry
Cheryl Berry 5 ամիս առաջ
Also, consider buying your hosing on a large bulk roll, (garden centers with pond accessories) as hosing really is /should be a cheap product and if you buy a bulk roll you can replace pieces as needed a lot cheaper than buying a short length.

Don’t worry about the content issues. Focus issues weren’t a distraction, your knowledge and frank discussion is what we come back to your channel for time and again. When you have a plan to release content every day, you have to go with what you get. I’m not sure if your editing tool allows it, but you could overdub your b-roll footage with the audio from out of focus content. More work editing though. An Aside... Jess, where was your Tik Tok moves when Sandi was shooting video in the market barn? Im sure Sandi would have been a bit upset but it would have been priceless.

If your ewe lambs are in good body score condition at breeding it should not be unusual to have a very high percentage of twins born Flush feeding also makes females produce more lambs per litter. Don't worry about those potatoes. If you need to replant it's ok.

Dont worry about your taters. If they can lay outside all winter and still sprout in the spring, you should be fine, unless you are talking really cold. I have had some I missed sprout even after last winter and temps of -40F. Good luck on the garden, definitely a great decision going by the current issues. Anyone who can grow their own food should be planting all they can eat and store away. This year is making me wish I was not in a truck all week with limited home time. But that's my job, keeping food in the stores so all can eat.

How do you keep the males from breeding your ewes when they are put together for market? Or are none of them together during their breeding season? I have ND goats and they can breed once a month haha so mine have to be separated after about 8-12 weeks old depending on the male.

My Grandmother was a sheep rancher in Montana. She called her bottle babies bummies😊. I had a question about sending your lambs to market. I have no problem with it at all, enjoyed a beautiful leg of lamb for Easter😄, you take such good care of your animals do you ever worry about their treatment by the processors? I am very adamant about ethical treatment of animals during the slaughtering process. Their is no excuse for abusing or terrifying them during this. Thankyou, I have so enjoyed watching your posts.❤🐑🐑

Just a thought...why not look at dams lifetime lambing percentage than just if lamb is multiple? As if a ewe has twin each time but, only lambs every 10 months...her yearly lambing percentage would be about 220%. Where a ewe that lambs every say with triplet, then 7 months later with a single, then twin 7 months after that...her yearly lifetime would be nearer to 300%. As I was told in NZ years ago....for a productive flock always look at lifetime, instead of just a multiple.

So market means the butcher.? Or like I live in Cedar City Ut. They go to auctions and farmers buy them. Do some of your lambs go to farmers? I think the lamb you said she would be one you would if you were going to. I think you should keep her name her molly, she would give u Quads. Just a feeling 🥰

I know how you feel Sandi. One thing I have always said, the WORST thing about farming, is getting rid of your stock, especially your pets that you have spent time and shared love with. But that’s farming and you choose to be in that industry, and that is just how it works.

I have had horses and bred rabbits, so sheep is a new thing and I love how you share with us. I am never bored watching even the same thing every day. Its actually calming after a long day, I have 3 kids 10, 5 and 3 i work part time because my husbands days are 14hr and I am so happy I found your vlogs. What you share is so interesting, keep it up!
