The flock of Welsh Mule Ewes are sired by Suffolk Rams and start lambing in early February. They are sold finished off grass through the local livestock market.
Cattle are purchased in the autumn. Barley Bulls are finished out of sheds in May and June but heifers are turned out to graze and are sold finished out of sheds the following winter.
