Sheep Farming: Moving Bottle Lambs

Video: Sheep Farming: Moving Bottle Lambs

at Ewetopia Farms, we decided that it was time to move our bottle lambs from the main barn over to the Coveralls to join their peers. It was also time to move the new lamb and her mom out of the lambing jug. So there was some lamb movement going on today plus we started using the offset disc to prepare an old hay field for next year's crops. Thanks for watching!
