To have Dohnes on your farm gives you a great advantage
In 2013, WA has had a very confused start to the season, good conditions in some places and in eastern parts a horrible start. It makes a hard job even harder in these times when the seasons go against us. To have Dohnes on your farm gives you a great advantage as the doing ability of them will certainly help you through the tough times. Here in Arthur River, we have enjoyed a good start and the sheep have made the most of it. At the time of writing, widespread rains have gone through most of the eastern parts, so I hope it is in time for those farmers concerned.

Far Valley Dohne's shine
After the bumper finish to the season of 2011, I was very interested to see what would happen with our conception rates this year. The ewes stayed in good condition throughout the summer and on just completing our pregnancy scanning the girls did not let me down. The mature ewes came in at 160% and the maidens were up also 135%. It was amazing the consistency in the mobs. By seperating the multiples from the singles we will be able to adjust our nutrition to the ewes as required. With the recent rains and a green pick emerging we are off to a great start to 2012.
