The backbone of the MAMRE system is the project plan, an EXCEL-based programme that allows you to enter your target date for synchronisation of your ewes. All the remaining activities for that group of ewes are then neatly diarised so that you know exactly what to do at what time. This allows you to run eight separate groups of ewes on an eight-month lambing cycle without losing the plot.

Whether you are an old hand at sheep production or haven’t even started yet or whether you farm in the wide expanses of the Karoo or on a small urban piece of land, this video should provide you with a lot of food for thought. Watch it below.
