Three pronged solution to maximising output from reduced inputs
Pure Lleyns + Hampshire Down cross lambs + forage management
“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.
