First crop hay is under our belt and many are already starting the second cut thanks to the rains some have received. Lambs are being marketed and most ewe flocks are on pasture resting up before the rams are turned in. The show season is well under way and the kids are working on their 4-H sheep projects. Be sure to offer a helping hand to these young shepherds not only showing their sheep, but educating them on the care, feeding and healthcare of their projects. Let’s help our future shepherds get started on the right foot!
