The break from major sheep work is over, the ewes are due to start lambing at the end of August. So we need to bring them in to be drenched (depending on worm counts), vaccinated with 6 in 1,give them a general check over and we will number the backs of the Stud ewes to help with mothering up and stud records. Then let them into a better paddock with plenty of shelter for lambing. We will also start fox baiting with 1080 to reduce numbers and predation before they start. A bit of fox spotlighting should also improve the effectiveness of the fox lights. Hopefully, those cranky llamas will be on guard as well now they have their own babies. As attractive as they are they haven't fully convinced us that they are effective.
