Well... the final numbers are in.
Still room for improvement... but this lambing group has taught me SO MUCH!
I was also able to weight my previous lambing group from December and was able to see SO much improvement that it almost brought me to tears.
Guys, if you are new here... thank you.
If you are part of my OG community... as always, thank you for supporting me. This one was a tough one. But, you always give me what I need to get through.
I love you all.

hi sandi, im not claiming to be an expert just a small time stock farmer in scotland .......listening to you hear reminded me of stuff i thought might make some sense to you ??? we used to hear from the advisors regarding what we should be paying for bulls or rams that the males represented half your herd as every animal is half bred half fed ....well that didnt completely make sense to me..my thinking was the dad only contributed half of the breeding and mum contributed the feeding and half the breeding therefore she is responsible for 3/4 of the herd/flock ......it has to be the same for sheep ....more of us need to be as well organised as you ... i think the data collected backs up what you are doing...we have been getting too many triplets here too meaning the workload is hard ....we had 1/3 triplets and quads this time too something similar to yourselves there . i now think we are now at a point where we need to not retain triplets for breeding to try to reduce that. i stopped keeping born singles too years ago to try to reduce the number of singles ....perhaps its worked too well .....i am thinking that for me here , higher numbers may not necessarily mean an optimum profitability . too many pets too much extra feed not to mention the extra work when we have other stuff to do .....years back i had to stop keeping the big born heifer calves as replacements and have now come to a similar conclusion with the ewes that its not always entirely the feeding or the sire that has affected the birth weight ...mum`s history has a contribution there too and to reduce problems and deaths associated with difficult lambings due to big lambs i think i need to be not keeping these extra big born ewe lambs as replacements either.... more reason for accurate data recording ......it all gets complicated doesnt it but things like this might help us with ease of management , efficiencies and ultimately profitability further down the line..... thanks for sharing your info

How does Orf spread. I just wondered because the older lambs were in the first pen before you moved them over. So now the younger ones are contagious. The germ may have been in the hay and transferred to the younger ones.

I wish I could climb get around as good as you do. My body is giving out on me and can no longer do the things when I was younger like riding on the tractor mowing the pasture, raising rabbits, gardening, all the things I loved to do. I have gone back to sewing now and watch you and others do your thing.

I see you using the computer and I can remember writing a program back in the 1980's for my dads uncles farm when I was a kid. By the time I went into the Army I knew of 40 farms in the Northeast of the US using it. The one thing, I learned, was that tracking the genealogy was important. A few years later they won an award for the NE of the US for the farm. Now, they are one of the few dairy farms operating in our county and back in the 80's there were tons of dairy farms.

This is the first time I've seen you. After watching bee saving guys for about a week I just stumbled upon your hubby crying because he got such a nice wood splitter from an unknown lady, and then I fell into you and all these cute lambs. LOVE that big beautiful smile of yours and especially all the love and care you give to all your animals going as far a naming each one, even though there are so many. Gives me an insight into the LOVE God has for everyone of us.

I am soon to be 87. I was born on a farm in Northwestern North Dakota. So I am so enjoying your videos. At one time I remember we had a lamb sleeping behind the kitchen stove because it was cold to be in the barn. I had a Great Aunt who had a sheep farm in the Southeastern part of the State. She allowed us to bottle feed the lambs, we were over joyed with this task. Now you know why I am so happy. I now live in the Bay Area of Northern California.

In breeding horses, the wisest breeders know that the quality and the influence of the mare is far more important that the sire. Always. There’s always the egocentric thought that it’s “all about the stallion and breeding”. But it’s the quality of the mare that makes the greatest difference.... because that’s the “blood-family”. Same with sheep. Same with humans, for that matter.

Viral infection may be helped by addition of Zinc (not trying to preach to the choir :)) Amazing share!! Love your attention to details Lambs fed on the same diet supplemented with zinc sulphate to provide total zinc levels of 17.4 and 32.4 p.p.m. had a higher feed intakc, made significantly greater liveweight gains, and showed no signs of zinc deficiency. Testicular growth and sperm production were markedly improved by both the zinc supplement.

You are a fantastic farmer and so encouraging to everyone to keep going and do their best. I so look forward to watching many many more. Love that you number your VLOGS, hope you have had a great day over in Canada xx

I didn't know anything about Sheep farming until I started watching Sandi's videos a few weeks ago. I didn't know lambs could get a disease like cold sores and people can catch it from them. Kind of yucky. I like when a bunch of Lambs go on a run. They all run together. It's funny.

Her name is Tara and we are from Thunder Bay. It was my first trip on my own. I met so many fun people back when we were all 19 or so. Such a big but small world. Hope you have a great upcoming season.

Are these sheep kept indoor in pens their whole life?! I have now watched several videos and I have not seen these sheep out in fields grazing. Why does they have sheep if they can't provide them fields to graze on?! I know the diary industry does this to cows, keeping them in barns 24/7, but did not know some farmers does this to sheep aswell:(

Merck Veterinary Manual (available online) has an easy to understand discussion on Orf. While I am a human doctor and not a Veterinarian, natural recovery from Orf is a 4 werk period, and natural development of the immune system to combat Orf offers life-long immunity. Vaccine offers protection, but not to the same degree as natural immune development and response to the virus. That being said, the virulence of Orf (the degree or severity of disease in a population) could indicate that vaccine administration could help prevent rampant spread if a high number of lambs (especially very young/newborn) are ill at the same time. Thank you for the beautiful video- I learned much from you today! 🐑 Respectfully, Dr. Lana Brumfield

As a fiber artist and historical interpreter, I adore your videos. I have huge appreciation for good sheep farmers who treat their sheep with such care and warmth. It comes through in the fleeces I buy. I can tell by the luster, fiber strength, and not having stress breaks how well cared for each sheep was. 🥰 Thank you for doing what you do, and sharing the normal highs and lows which come with animal husbandry. Your work, and that of other sheep farmers like you, makes my work, my joy, my passion possible. Hooray for farmers! 🎉

Hello! I’m new here and I just love it here. The lambs really brighten my days. I’ve started watching from your first blog and I am learning so much. “Preg talks” have been driving me nuts. That is how it is spelled out when I turn on the caption button. I’m a nurse so I think you are really saying “preg TOX” for toxicity?? I’d love to read more about what’s going on, if you’d be willing to point me in the right direction for trust worthy information. Keep your chim up, you’ve created a wonderful place here! 🐑 🐑

Based on the stats you provided, it adds up to 230 lambs. Last lambing you had 14.73% mortality and this lambing 14.35% (that's including the mummified lambs and cache valley lambs). Nice to see your mortality go down, really appreciate that you share the numbers with us.

I completely agree with your conclusion with the lambs that will be going to market, that taking care of mom and the lambs is more important than the genetics provided by the ram. I breed horses, the focus had always been on the stallions, and they always say that genetics is 50/50. I do not agree with that. The environment in the uterus and the husbandry on mare and foal and in your case ewe and lamb is more important that genetics even will provide. You did well last year, just stay on that track. And congratulations on finishing lambing and your scores for this season.

You may have gotten an influx of new watchers because -- assuming I'm not the only one -- some of us who follow fiber/fleece/shepherding due to our interest in processing fleece for spinning/knitting/weaving got you in our "recommendations" feed. Maybe because it's lambing and shearing season for us watchers, and you slid right into that. As I've said elsewhere, your work/life/approach is wholly different from what I've been exposed to so far, but dang, it's fascinating as all heck, and I, for one, am finding myself rather addicted to your video feed now... ;-)
