1. Don't forget to record the lambs when they are born and from which dam.

2. At eight week old weigh the lambs.

3. Later in the summer at weaning time you will then need to weigh the ewes.

4. Calculate the Weight Ratio figure for each ewe (using spreadsheet or on-farm software)

5. Send you average flock figure through to Heather for statistical purposes.  This data is confidential, your individual data will not be made public it will be used to help generate Society overview data.

Are you having problems getting the data to produce the figures?  Maybe you have got software issues?  Is so please do contact Heather.  You are not the only one experiencing problems, we are here to help.
