At Hedgeley we have a lowland flock of 900 North Country Mules that are put to the Texel Tup in November to lamb on the 1st April the following year.
The lambs are either sold direct to slaughter or sold store from August onwards. All lambs are finished at grass.
We also run an upland flock of 1200 Swaledale and Blackface ewes. The upland flock are either put to the Blue-Faced Leicester to produce replacements for the lowland flock, or the Swaledale/ Blackface to produce replacements for the upland and hill flocks. All the wethers are sold fat or store from August onwards.
Following the selection of lambs, our TagMaster Auto draft system can draw out those that are at the desired weight and daily liveweight gain. Buyers of our lambs are provided with a list of lambs for sale, individual weights, and daily liveweight gain data.
