The farm

We breed Gotlandic sheep on our farm and have about 170 ewes. Each year about 300 lambs are born during the months of March and April. The lambs and ewes are then put on grazing land till weaning which is at the end of July to the beginning of August. After weaning the ewes graze the natural pastures and the lambs are kept closer to the homestead. The young lambs have their pelts judged at the beginning of August and the best ram lambs are picked out for national judging.

We also produce beef cattle on the farm. We usually have around 20 calves during the months February to May. The calves are raised and then sold to slaughter or kept for breeding. The main breeds are Charolais and Simmental. The beef cattle graze the same land as the sheep which can have many advantages.
