Tupping

Tupping is a vitally important time in the farming calendar.  Our tups have a lot of work to do, a lot of ewes to successfully cover.


Coloured raddle is applied to the tups every day.  This mark is left on the ewes they have covered  and the colour tells us when they will lamb.  At Pry House Farm we start with yellow raddle.  After 2 weeks we change to green.

 There are a lot of yellow bottoms! We expect to be very busy this lambing time.
