“My daughter Sophie, and her partner Dai have a flock of Romney ewes which lamb in late March and April.”
They are an easy care breed, and they lamb outside with few difficulties, and no supplementary feed. This year they are lambing up on the downs, where we used to lamb when I was a child, so it really feels like turning the clock back.
The ewes are scanned to see how many lambs they are carrying; this allows the ones with triplets and twins to be given the best pasture. Lambs are weaned in mid summer, and we start eating them from around September onwards. Most of the females (ewe lambs) are sold for breeding, as the Romney is now in great demand for their vitality and hardiness.
