Don’t you shear the back ends of wool ewes, called crunching I believe.
Yes i do. But due to the risk of FMD im slowly having to do it with hand shearsDon’t you shear the back ends of wool ewes, called crunching I believe.
FMD= foot and mouth disease. Its been detected at the australian borders and if it gets in to flock and surrounding flocks near a case of it will be euthinzed and burned so im limiting who can come onto the property with our sheep unless its an emergencyFMD?
I have a few commercial ewes that don’t shed well, when I can’t stand it any longer, I use hand shears or ruin a pair of scissors. LOL
I took them to a stud breeder to breed them to a grand champion ram@Daisy1702 How do you breed the ewes? As far as I know u only have 2 sheep but not sure if u have a ram too do you lease one or take them to a stud place?
