Time for some lambs to go to auction to catch Greek Easter market.
An old ewe went along because her lambs were smallest and she only has one side of her udder working.
That worked out well as I led her by halter and most of lambs trotted right behind into the trailer.
LN sorted 4 off and kept rest to decide which to show. Those 4 weighed 50#, 60#, 65# and 66# at 10 weeks. The ones we kept are meatier and bigger.
Since we were loading up I sent the demonic bull calf as well.
He didn't load as slick. I cornered him and he jumped the 4 ft tall fence right before the trailer.
I regrouped and tied his Momma and Aunt against that part which is the lowest. The rest of fence is 5 ft. An extra gate and a few smacks and he jumped in.
I dropped the ball on breaking him and I never cut/banded him either.
He weighed 675# at almost 7 months.
If he was cut and broke I'd have kept him for meat but not to be.
The market was still up and I was happy with the prices.
I'm not happy that it'll all go to Uncle Sam for taxes.
