Lambs on feed

25 Nov

Hampshire-Rambouillet crossbred lambs

Our lambs are happily ensconced at Harper’s Feedlot near Greeley. They are eating corn and growing every day. Pat, Tiarnan and I went to visit them recently. The weather is warm–too warm for this time of year–so all the lambs on the feedlot are doing really well.

      We have Rambouillet commercial ewes, and farm flocks of Rambouillets and Hampshire that we raise bucks from. We lamb in May and June. To see the whole cycle, look back through the blog post entries.
