These sheep were 'calling' to each other and were much more 'vocal' than expected by this photographer.
Lambing appears to take place in early Spring while the weather is very chilly. Merino sheep were seen around the Parkes area possibly grown for their wool.
On the other hand, lamb meat is retailing up to $29 per kg. We were accustomed to plentiful reasonable priced meat supplies and had it lucky for a long time. Coles supermarket states the meat is on special!
In recent horrible drought times, sheep were put down and culled yet maximum prices still remained the norm. Not so bad if the profit goes to the farmer but does it?
