Wethers to the butcher

Yesterday I drove two wether lambs to Gensemer's in Bloomsburg. Caroline was correct, Katahdins gain weight when the weather turns cold. Selecting for calm ewes, building efficient handling systems to limit stress and rotational grazing across our improving pastures seems to have fostered my developing shepherding skills. Hopefully this experience will translate into higher finished weights. The two lambs in the back of my Subaru looked good; there is a certain amount of satisfaction in a job well done.
