A busy Sunday started with weighing our lambs. There are some encouraging signs with the heaviest lambs coming in at 30kg at 8 weeks old, demonstrating perfectly the ability of the Suffolk to grow quickly. Most of the lambs have doubled their weight in the last 4 weeks!
The exceptionally wet weather manages to keep all of the sheep indoors though; with much of the livestock throughout the area being kept away from waterlogged pasture. It could be a late turn-out this year!
