At the end of March, before lambing period, sheep are sheared around udder so that new lambs can get easily to milk. Hoofes are taken care of. The herd is treated with wormer and re-vaccinated for enterotoxemia (Covexin inj.). Then the herd moves to lambing pasture (different from wintering pasture and previous year lambing pasture). The lambing period takes from the end of April to the end of May. Old rams are formed to separate flock in the half of July and moved to distant pasture. Lambs are weighted, treated with wormer and vaccinated at the begining of August. At the very begining of September male lambs are moved to flock of old rams to be separeted from females. Then, later in September, comes the main wool shearing. Animal hoofs are treated if necessary. Wormer is used according to laboratory inspection of parasite eggs in dropping. Breeding female lambs are tupped together with ewes (so in the first year) from the end of November.
