We had to pick up some milk replacer for our bottle lambs and the new radio frequency ear tags that all sheep have to have when they leave your farm.

I took some pictures of the wool  baled and ready to be shipped out.

small bags woolThese are the small ones they are compressed and weigh about 500 pounds

large bales 2  big wool bales 2These are the larger ones. I don’t know how much they weigh. That is my husband standing beside the bales so you can see how big they are. I think he is taking a picture for Facebook.

And lastly this is one of the reasons we where there.

    Brrr – it looks cold there. That’s an amazing amount of wool under one roof!
    What a gorgeous ‘baby’. Those lambs must keep you very busy.

    Wow, I’ve never seen so much wool! It’s a good thing it’s not roving yet. 🙂 The lamb is darling.

    Just wondering where all that wool goes? That’s an amazing load of wool!
    I saw a bunch of sheep–all different breeds–when I visited Scotland a few years ago. The sheep were just so beautiful that I never got tired of looking at them. I thought at the time that they were very sweet animals (that’s a city girl talking!)

    • I am not sure who the sell it too. Most of it comes form meat sheep so its carpet(course) wool. They a pretty nice unless you have a grain bucket and then they act like crazed lunatics.

    Is the wool milled locally? I am always interested in anything that is actually “made in Canada”.

    Those are some big bales. I would also be interested to know where most of that wool goes. Love the baby photos even their tails 🙂
