Scanning Ewes

Hello Folks,
We are really ready for spring to arrive here at Premier. I am sure like most everyone else, we are sick of snow and ice. Green grass and warmer temperatures can not come soon enough.

Today we scanned all of the ewe lambs. Carol Dodge, Ewe Countem of Eau Claire, WI did the scanning. We then marked the ewes based upon Carol's scans as open, single or twins or more. Then the ewes will be sorted and managed depending on how many fetuses they are carrying.
Shed lambing starts here the end of March with pasture lambing starting the first of May.

We have also been busy finishing the spring fence catalog. It went to the printer earlier this week and should be in your hands the week of March 15th. Pictured are just a couple of the new products that will be featured in the 2010 edition. They can also be viewed on our website in the next couple of weeks. (Double Spiked ElectroNet, RaccoonNet to protect sweet corn, “all in one” solar units and Pig Quikfence.)
