For hill farmers every year is the Year of the Sheep!
Today some of our sheep have been scanned to see if they are carrying one or two
(or occasionally three) lambs.
|Coming in off the fells for scanning|
|Adrian brings his mobile scanning equipment, quickly sets up and the process begins. Andrew stands by to spray every ewe that is having twins with a blue mark .|
|Its an almost fool proof system and it is a great help to us at lambing time to know which sheep is about to have twins and which will only have a single.|
