I was brought up on a sheep farm, which we had 800 Suffolk crossed Mule that we breed with telex rams. Then we would have 150 Mules which we would put a Suffolk ram, to keep the female lambs as replacements to the breeding flock. I would help out with lambing season but mainly taking ewes and lambs to fields.
Worked on a beef farm on a Saturday morning whilst I was at collage just feeding and bedding up.
