Sheep Farming Vlog: Switching Out Rams!

Video: Sheep Farming Vlog: Switching Out Rams!

Today at Ewetopia Farms, we are switching out the rams. We decided to take out Hannibal and Felon, our two Suffolk rams, because a) Hannibal injured his foot so we don't know how well he was breeding and b) Felon is an older ram and we just want to make sure all the girls got covered. After squeezing those two rams together in order for them to get used to each other again, we decided to join Monster's breeding group with the other two groups to make one large breeding group. We moved them over to the other barn and took down the dividing wall. Then, we decided that since we were switching out rams, we may as well move out Monster as well. Stay with us to see who we chose as the clean-up ram!
