2016 Mating – done and dusted.

the-boysA concerned look on the faces of our workmen – Agro, Boss and Rowdy as they contemplate bringing in another mob of Merino ewes to draft off rams.

 “Phewww…it is all done and dusted, time for some shuteye”.

 Mating is over for 2016 and despite the extraordinarily dry conditions since October 2015, the ewes look in the best condition ever on ‘Thornton Park’ for this time of year.  Fingers crossed we achieve over 100% lambing percentage (pre-scanning) for the 6th consecutive year.  We’ll have to wait to find out at lamb marking in late September.
