John Large: Why it might be worth planting some multispecies this year

blank

The great work of weighing and weaning the lambs born in March is complete. Our average weaning weight was 33kg with a wide variation from some lambs over 50kg to small lambs of 15kg. That’s what happens when you weigh all the lambs, but to get the right result you have to weigh them all, there’s no point in weighing only the best lambs.

Her average daily weight gain since last weigh in was 260g per day which is a bit disappointing but with dense weed and not good quality we expected the weight gain to be back. With our lead at 40-day weight, we still hit our 70+ wean goal. When we had the lambs on the scales we also checked the Dag Score with 70 of the lambs being clean and 30 showing signs of soiling.
