Oats and Sheep and Barley Grow

We have reached a decision of what to feed our ewes to boost their nutrition around lambing time! Instead of craisins, we are going to feed locally grown oats and barley. This will give the sheep the energy they need while supporting the local economy and reducing the amount of fossil fuel used in transportation. The club will even get to visit the farm in Toledo where the oats and barley are grown, meeting our farmer and learning more about the source of our grain.
