Ewes and Lambs

Most of this past year has been spent working on our Lambtracker open source flock management program. As a result this blog has been totally neglected. My twitter feed has been the one thing that I am keeping up with. It’s a lot easier to just send a quick tweet than it is to write a decent blog post!

However, we are lambing now, and the first full cycle of LambTracker development is nearing the end.

Lambing is going well, we again were very successful with our AI experiment with 50% of the ewes getting pregnant via AI. We tried the procedure on 24 ewes and 12 lambed to AI. Our backups seem to have worked and we are nearly 1/3 done with lambing with lots of nice healthy lambs.
