France and Ireland Reconnaisance Report.

A more fulsome report will follow in due course.  The image is of James, Yves Lemaire and a fine-looking Ram at the Ile de France breeding centre in Verdilly, Ile de France.

In the meantime, James’ busy daily farming schedule has resumed amidst fairly settled mid-winter weather.  We’re currently set stocking for lambing as the trickle of spring lambs begins.

We’re looking forward to our first Merino/ Ile de France Cross lambs from our commercial flock as we’re hoping to achieve a winning combination of fast-growing lambs with fleece micron in the early 20s.
