Re: Cidrs

Even other ewes will pull the cidrs out from other ewes.
I generally trim the pull take so as not to have this problem.

logging in

Logging in has been a real pain in the behind for me. It used to be that I did not have to log in. Now if I want to send or reply I NOW have to log in every time. The old way was better.
I will not be logging in as much any more because of this problem.

Re: NSIP and grass based producers

Yes, Peg, I have been reading this section. An example. I used semen from a ram that was raised in pastures in Western Australia, on lambplan, and in my own flock his data stayed the same. This animals data really helped my flock but brought some other positive items I liked. His ram lambs I used in...

Re: What If?

Organized a group years back that had breeders from USA and Canada called the Ontario Suffolk Sire Reference Association. We used frozen semen in each flock. Was working great but as time went along it finally fell apart. The web site is still up if interested.

Re: What is the perfect environment

Hi Kathy:
I agree with your comments.
One item I have found is finding performance tested frozen semen that can come to Canada. It is a major item to be able to operate in a performance tested world.

Re: Importing from Canada

sheep put into same category of BSE so USDA closed the border for cattle ,sheep and goats, even though sheep do not and never had BSE. The border is open to Cattle in both directions. Canada allows sheep from USA but the other direction is closed for sheep.

Re: Importing from Canada

It had been done legally in the past. I would check with a federal USA vet. Could be in the same category as live animals. I am sure the sender and receiver must be on each countries scrapie program.

Re: How would a club-type ram influence commercial flock?

Joe: I purchased a ram out of USA about 2008. He was measured at the test station as 6.12 lea. There was a lot of other items I liked. This ram is still alive to-day. I could not bring him on our farm, but a commercial person would take care of him so I could have all the testing done so as to colle...
