February 22, 2015 Our ewe Stormy presented us with our first lamb for the season. This ewe lamb is the also the first AI Leicester lamb born on our farm and the first AI lamb out of a new ram line from Brenton Heazlewood's flock in Australia. We want to thank Jane Servinski for her heroic efforts in importing these new genetics to North America to help diversify our lines. And also a big thank you to our AI technician, Glen Erickson. We will definitely be keeping this ewe lamb as she is also the first daughter Stormy has produced for us; she has only had ram lambs in the past.
February 24th. Hannah had her ram and ewe lamb safely delivered in spite of -10 degrees and high winds early this morning - thank goodness for a high and dry barn! They are sired by the new AI ram so we are very pleased with this set of twins.
February 25th. Ellen Wilson had a single AI ram lamb today. She's an extremely protective mother and it's about impossible to get a picture of him! I like this one because you can see her stomping her foot at me!!
February 28th. Prudence had first first lamb via LAI this morning. He's a nice sturdy ram and she is a very good first time mom. Now we are hoping that the rest of the lambs arrive with temps above freezing!
