Lambing 2017 is underway at Palmerston Coopworths, with lamb number 100 tagged today. Only another 900 to go…we wish they were all as quiet as this old girl and measuring birth weights would be a breeze.

Palmerston Coopworths escorted over 30 Kiwi and a smattering of Aussie Coopworth breeders on a 3 day “tiki tour” at the end of May. We pulled together a diverse itinerary which showcased the best of northern Tasmanian agriculture. The group were impressed by the diversity and quality of Tasmanian agriculture and the passion of those we visited. However, the unanimous highlight would have been the Tassie devil feeding time at Trowunna, where 7 devils made short work of a possum (declared the best use ever of a possum by those who witnessed it – we think that they’re selling their possum-merino blend a bit short).
