Last Thursday, the NI Sheep Programme held a webinar focusing on preparing ewes and rams for the upcoming breeding season. Hosting the event was programme farmer Clement Lynch, who farms outside Park, Co Derry. Clement runs 500 ewes on 54ha of improved grassland and 155ha of hill grazing.

Clement’s flock is split between 150 Lanark-type Scottish Blackface ewes and the remainder being a mix of Mule- and Suffolk-cross animals.
