George, Neal and Mary Ellen,
Yes there are a few of us just waiting for someone else to say something. Like Mary Ellen, I will be seperating the rams and ewes sometime this month.It has been too hot here to bother them right now. It has been above normal temperatures for quite a while and dry, but we had a wet Spring so are not as bad as Neal's area. Hope you get some rain soon Neil. Here in Southern Indiana the corn is rolling on the sandy ground and we need a rain, but the water table is OK due to the wet Spring we had. Most of the farmers planted Soybeans instead of corn this year because they couldn't get in the fields early enough. About all the clay ground was no-tilled this year.It has been dry so those baling hay won't have to worry about mildew.
The county fairs have started so I am busy judging the poultry at several fairs and will be until the middle of next month. I always check the sheep barn while I am at the fairs to see if anyone has any Jacobs there. For those of you that don't know, I have bred and shown exhibition poultry since a teenager and while judging one of the fairs saw my first Jacob Sheep and knew the moment I saw them I wanted some. I had raised sheep a couple times before, but never seen a Jacob. The ones I saw were not being shown, but were on display. Had they not been displayed at the fair I might never have known about the breed. I am glad they were. I am hooked!
