Bleu Sires Farm Walk

Bleu Sires Farm Walk

Johnny Stables hosted a Farm walk at his Co,Durham farm recently

Report from Janet Richardson

Visit to Johnny Stables Dunelm Flock
After an introduction by Johnny there was an opportunity to assess some 9month old ram lambs supplied by Robin Johnson. It was an interesting exercise to grade and judge them by handling and then see the actual muscle scores - all over 32mm.  Out in the fields we reviewed his Bleu du Maine flock of 33 ewes, some of which have been AI'd using Goldies Fortress semen (veteran flock owners will know that name!).  Then onto his commercial Cheviot and LLyen flock of 100 ewes in lamb to Cysgod and Burford rams.  Finally after this walk about we returned to a beef and dumpling lunch with apple crumble and custard for afters.
Many thanks to the Stables family for putting on such a good show of very fine sheep.
