    Marla will you selling the two little boys for butchering? If so how will you go about it? I’m curious because I’m trying to get my little farm to help supplement our income. At this point I sell eggs(really only covers feed costs) and vegetables in the summer. In a couple weeks we should have a lamb or two which we will sell for either breeding stock or the little boys for meat. Our farm also feeds us so there is that, but I would like to expand. Thanks, I always enjoy your posts! Linda in North Dakota. 🙂

    • Hi Linda, I would love to sell them as 4-H projects … but our overall intention is to sell them as market animals at auction. There are some big seasonal auctions, which tend to fall in line with the Muslim holidays. I have not done a ton of research into it yet, though.
