January 2015 Farm Specials

January 5, 2015

Happy New Year!  We want to take a moment to tell you how much we have appreciated your patronage through the years and we hope to serve you even better in 2015.  We are working on some new and exciting things and hope to be able to share them with you soon.  

Due to the holidays and the processing plant closing for vacation, we are a little behind schedule in our processing.  But, we will catch up over the next three weeks.  We have been busy winterizing everything for the Arctic air that we are getting over the next few days.  We have 3 new sets of piglets bedded down in the barn.  

Lambing begins in a couple of weeks with about 200 ewes bred to drop lambs.  Needless to say, there is going to be a lot of work to do.  Did you know that each ewe when she lambs gets 1-3 days in the barn depending on the weather.  Once she's lambed, we check her teats to ensure that she is able to be nursed.  We trim her hooves and deworm her.  We tag and record her lambs weight, tag number and sex.  As soon as the lambs are ready and the weather permits, mom and babies are sent out to a new pasture for the ewes that have lambed.  They will have access to a loafing barn, where they can come and go as they please.  

Calving doesn't start up until March and for that we are most thankful.
