The Life A sheep:

  • Because of the sheep year being in the middle of October when the rams are put in with the ewes for breeding. Where they put one ram in with a group of ewes,then the rams are switched around after the intital and dos heat cycles just in case some ewes do not become fertile after being exposed to the first ram.
  • In the Fall Breeding, majority of the ewes get pregnant within the 17 days of the breeding season, which is the average length of one estrus(heat) cycle.During the Fall fertility is high when breeding.The flock will stay on pasture until the grass is depleted, usually around Christmas time, earlier if it was a drought year.
