“Since we decided to swap our crossbred ewes for a closed flock of pure Lleyns in the late 1990s we’ve been able to virtually double stocking rate to six ewes per acre and flushing is no longer required. The number of pure Lleyn lambs reared from ewes put to the ram has increased by 20% to 185% in 2013, and just 3.5% of the flock scanned barren,” Matt explains. “We’ve a new income stream selling pure performance recorded shearling Lleyn ewes to commercial producers, whilst our Hampshire Down cross lambs are finishing off grazed grass at an average 20 weeks to 19kg target weight and grading within the U, R specification.” [More]
