Rams are going out to meet the ewes for "business" in the next few days so Jean, Robert and James are in the midst of high tech discussions to ensure everything goes smoothly.
James is planning a proper business trip with wife, Eliza, to source genetics from France and Ireland this year.
James is having French travel lessons but is concerned that "Bonjour" and "Comment vous appelez vous?" may not cut the mustard when trying to communicate the complexities of sheep breeding in the beautiful language.
Jean and Robert are preparing for the construction of covered yards at their Omihi Farm so we have anticipation and exitement all round.
