Market Lamb Time

Here is Mr. Buttons.   This is one of Anna’s market lambs for showing this year.  She bought him at an auction in River Falls, WI.  He actually is from Minnesota, G. String Ranch.   Anna bought 2 lambs from them last year.  Their lambs are so friendly and are natural bracers.

He is already “setting up”.   He is on the small side, so is lamb 2, he is still being weaned.  Anna is trying to win the Rate of Gain Champion – this is goes to the lamb that gains the most weight between the weight in day and fair check in day without going over 150# with a rate of gain .45#/day.  This isn’t easy to do, sometimes lambs will go off feed and not gain – so we will see….
