What a year we are having with one thing and another, however as always within farming as well as dealing with the current situation you are planning for the next year, I have drawn up my tupping lists for next year and the rams will be going in with the ewes later this month. We have two ram lambs which are looking very promising so they will be getting a trial this time which means our whole pedigree ram team this time will be top 1% for the breed.

Last year we expanded the commercial flock with the addition of 150 Lleyn ewes, which lambed well and their lambs grew on and I am pleased to say that we finished selling lambs by the 5th June from our January lambing flock. One of our local butcher customers said these were the best lambs he has had from us in ten years, which is always pleasing to hear that the end product is improving.

For obvious reasons we will not be holding an open evening this year, however we will as always be selling rams off farm, with a strong selection of shearlings mainly in top 10%, please look at the sales page for the details.

Another year rolls on, as I write this we are having some much needed rain to keep all the crops and grass growing, so long as it remembers to stop.

We had a good lambing with numbers holding up well despite the dry summer last year, due in part to our decision to supplement the ewes at tupping. The commercial lambs grew on well with 50% again sold for Easter, and although not hitting last year’s heights we had a good trade with our customers happy to pay a premium for good quality lambs hitting their requirements.

The breeding lambs suffered early on with a nemotodirus outbreak but they are now moving on well again. Their ultrasound scanning results showed some variance and the scanning of them earlier at 14-16 weeks means their actual scan figures take some getting used to, as will the new National Terminal Sire Evaluation and the rebasing of the Suffolk figures.

If you want more information on this and the latest from the Ramcompare project please do come along to our open evening on Wednesday the 10th July at Manor Farm, Harrold at 6.30pm.

If you are unable to make the evening but are looking for a ram please do look at our sales page, with many of them being in the top5% on the Suffolk Breed.
