Re: Multiple births

Big Iron makes a great observation in that many of the breeds have had their maternal instincts eliminated by the jugging process taught in most all our universities. We loaned rams to Oregon State to use to develop an easy care sheep. When we went to visit during lambing, here the sheep were in jug...

Re: bold coyotes?

We run 8-9 dogs, and want them to stay home. we have yotes all around us, listen to...

Re: December Treminal Reports are up and available

Woolpuller, I sent my dry shipper to AU, it had to be decontaminated, which meant new baffles, cost A$60. Filled it with 1100 straws and sent back. This was just last July. Wet shippers are very expensive to ship, due to being considered hazardous material on airlines now, so wouldn't recommend usin...

Re: December Treminal Reports are up and available

NDCurt, It is not difficult to bring semen in from AU. The procedure is straight forward as far as testing, quarantine and permits are easy to accomplish. Cost is a factor. Collection and freezing is only $7-9 per straw, but breeder charge for semen can vary widely. Shipping is a set rate, so the mo...

Not sure how to get the word out to those that are not on NSIP or this discussion group. We have been on LP since 2001, but can always learn something new.

Re: sire and dam with similar grandsire

Andy, Lambplan recommends staying below 12 1/2% coefficient of inbreeding. We regularly do that, and have gone to 25% with no discernable problems on our best maternal lines. It depends a little on what might be lurking in the background. Have you tried your plan on a small scale to detect possible ...

Re: Dorpers

Just a note on lamb prices. I just sent 85 hd. to Superior right off grass. Had a few Feb, lambs and a lot of March-April. Had 9 lights that were yield grade 1, the rest YG 2. The break down was as follows: 38 were 45 and under, 29 were 45-50, 12 were 50-55, 5 were 55-60 and one was 60+. These were ...
