Easy Care Sheep – too little work!

Barony College, Dumfries, have sold their Easy Care sheep flock because they were ‘just too easy to care for’.

Mr Iolo Owen, Easy Care Sheep Society Secretary, explains: “Because the flock shed their winter coats and did not need assistance at lambing, Mr Aitkin, the livestock manager at Barony, said there were not suitable for a college farm. Last year they scanned at 197% and weaned at 186% with none needing lambing assistance. Commercially they were a brilliant success, but they gave the students no experience at shearing or lambing. They were just too Easy to Care for!”

This year’s Easy Care Sheep Society sales dates are:-

  • Thirsk on 13th September
  • Gaerwen on 15th September
  • Exeter on 26th September
  • Worcester on 27th September
  • Carlisle on 3rd October.
