Shearing on the Farm

Shearing of the main flock of sheep commenced yesterday with a fairly easy day of 300 sheep between the contract shearers and Sam Williams. This is the first flock that the shearers have done this season. Day two is now here and a bigger target of around 4-500 will be the aim. the ewes are all seperated from their lambs for the shearing and then re united afterwards so we always try and keep this as swift as possible. Look out for a video on the website soon!
