Wonderful Feed

We have recently put a 100 ewes in half a hectare of 8-month-old trees which were established in August 201220130418_101730

The sheep grazed on these trees for 4 days, and devoured them!

(Click to follow us – we’ll share the “after” photos soon!)

What we must consider is that the trees are only 8 months old and there are absolutely no grasses between the trees. The Lucerne trees were the sole grazing.

By next year the same hectare will give us 12 day’s grazing when some grasses are established between the trees.

Happy farming!
