Sheep Scanning Herefordshire Gloucester & Worcester

Sheep pregnacy indicator for small flocks, just like scanning I can see if they are inlamb after 40 days form service.
It works by locating amniotic fluid inside the uterus. The ultrasonic probe is pressed against the animal’s skin, and emits ultrasonic sound waves which are reflected by the amniotic fluid in the uterus of a pregnant ewe, and returned back to the probe.

Angora goat shearing

I now shear Angora goats, get a flock check and foot trim

Here is a little about Angora goats from wikepedia
The fleece taken from an Angora goat is called Mohair. A single goat produces between four and five kilograms of hair per year. Angoras are shorn twice a year, unlike sheep, which are shorn only once. Angoras, despite their coats, bear no relation to sheep. Turkey, the United States, and South Africa are the top producers of mohair. For a long time, Angora goats were bred for their white coats. In 1998, the Colored Angora Goat Breeders Association was set up to promote breeding of colored Angoras. Now, Angora goats produce white, black (deep black to greys and silver), red (the color fades significantly as the goat gets older), and brownish fibers.

Angora goats are more susceptible to external parasites (ectoparasites) than similar animals, as their coats are denser. They are not prolific breeders, nor are they considered very hardy, being particularly delicate during the first few days of life. Further, Angoras have high nutritional requirements due to their rapid hair growth. A poor-quality diet will curtail mohair development.
