Sad News

We have had another loss on the farm. This one was shocking! Our newest ram, Ginkgo, broke his neck just before breeding season starts this week. I have looked long and hard for some Bennett breeding in a St Croix ram, found it, and was really excited to see how the lambs were this next winter.

I am thankful I still have our ram, Dasher to cover the majority of the St Croix ewes (one is a full sister though so she will go to a Katahdin ram for crossbred lambs). Breeding starts Wednesday, August 19th. I know Dasher will do an amazing job, just bummed I lost Ginkgo to his own testosterone.
