Sounds like you have some amazing plans! Good luck and please update and let us all know how it's working outThey do! I've always felt it was possible to never deworm nor flush with or feed grain and Mr. Judy has proved that over and over. I want to do that here also and I have no problem culling hard for the ability to do it.
Right now the sheep are scoring 3-3.5 as they go into breeding season and that's with no grain supplement nor chemical deworming for them. They get 2 days on, 2 days off pasture so the ram can get graze too(I don't have established paddocks yet, just open range) and I can't wait until they can all graze together. This season it can be like that, but by spring I hope to have paddocks established so I can rotate them through those with the use of polywire.
By next year I want to expand my total pasture area and start clearing wood lots to get into some silvopasture. I have acorns in these woods that can be utilized by the sheep if I can just get their pasture to those areas.
