Nice looking lambs. I like the way black head Dorpers mark mixed breed lambs with black markings on their faces. We have a wether (bottle baby) with black eye patches so we named him Panda. He'll be the ram companion, so will have a job.

Mad scientist indeed! LOL

G'day folks, some new news from us.Meg had her pups last evening,7 but 2 were "still".

I have a contact at one of the MIddle Eastern Embassy's,so I sent him a note offering them a lamb for the upcoming celerbration.Its is for free all I ask is for some feedback on the taste and quality of the meat. I have no doubt that if it is to their likeing they will purchase in the future and word will "get around" the other embassy's and so we should establish a list of clients in the future...TO.R.

That is a beautiful litter. Too bad about the 2 stillborns but you have 5 healthy puppies. I love Meg’s color, I am partial to tan markings on a chocolate or black colored dog.
That’s a great idea about the embassy and will provide a steady stream of customers once word gets around. Direct marketing is lucrative once you get a customer base.

We raise feeder pigs and had one customer, which paid for the one we raised for ourselves. We just gained 2 more customers and will actually make money on the 3 pigs we are raising now. We have 2 customers each wanting half a steer, have a steer reserved for December and now only need a slaughter date in March 2022. LOL wish me luck on the slaughter date. We now have 5 customers that buy chicken from us. We raise the Cornish Cross meat chickens. It started out with 1 customer, it paid for ours, it is growing slowly.

We did have a decent start on lamb meat customers, but nailing down a slaughter date a year or more in advance on lambs not even conceived yet, much less born, was just too ridiculous. So we have taken them to auction and done well there.

My question, on your lamb customers, do they do the slaughtering themselves? My lamb customers were white people who wouldn’t even think about slaughtering an animal themselves. I would welcome an ethnic customer base.
