Tupping is the term used for when the rams breed with the ewes to produce lambs. For our flock, this starts in October when the ewes naturally begin to come into season.
During September we start to feed the rams organic supplementary feed, such as organic oats, to help increase their stamina and strength. The rams generally start to feel something good is about to happen and get even more boisterous.
Our ewes come into season naturally and everything is left for nature to take its course. Hormone treatments or similar to produce lambs out of season are never used.
