Sunshine and showers!
9th June 2018
June is always a busy month....
...... the sun shines and lulls us into a false sense of security. Then the heavens open and we have a few centimetres of rain in an afternoon!
June, the month we think about shearing the ewes and making the sileage.
So a stressful month. You can only shear when the ewes fleeces are dry. The day is set, the shearers arrive and you have a sudden surprise downpour before the sheep are in the shed! That scuppers that.
Somehow though the ewes eventually get shorn, the fodder made and the farmers stress level reduces!
