A Lambing Journal - Day 17

Thanks to our apprentice, Paul, and his family, I didn't need to be present at the ranch much today!  I spoke at the Nevada Small Farm Conference in Fallon this afternoon.  On the way there, I dropped off a small load of ewes at Wolfpack Meats in Reno - we'll have sausage soon!

We had 3 sets of twins and two single lambs today.  Our lambing percentage has improved from last year - we're at close to 140%.  I expect this number to increase over the next several weeks.

Tomorrow, we're purchasing 130 yearling ewes for our grazing contract in Rocklin - looks like another busy weekend!
