Calving and lambing has begun at Mainsgill! Last week we welcomed our first set of lambs, and this week we have had our first calve!
Lambing is one of the most exciting and important times in the farming calendar. Our lambs are produced from our flock of 400 Texel ewes, crossed with our Texel and Charollais rams. Our flock of Kerryhill ewes are to start lambing during February too.
Not only are we welcoming lambs into the world this February, we are on watch to await the arrival of our calves. We are due to start calving 70 of our finest chosen commercial heifers. This year we have bread off our two stock bulls; Henry a Charolais and Lenny and Angus.
