I now have a pair of well bred Rams! Made the trip over to Bailieboro to pick them up last week and had a nice chat with the owner, Ruco Braat, while he sorted them out for me. Always nice to see how other people’s facilities are set up, and what things you could copy on your own farm. I quite liked his handling facilities, and would certainly like to be able to do something similar.
The rams haven’t yet been sheared for the summer, which is ironic, because he is a shearer as well. Apparently, he’s been busy with everyone else’s, and hasn’t got his own done yet.
