What kind of sheep did you keep?

My base herd was corridale rambouillet crosses. I then started breeding them to straight suffolk. My business was grass fed lamb, was selling them off the rail back in high school. When feeding a high energy diet, I'm assuming you're mixing in a fair bit of a fibre source if you're pushing the sugars?

Those are beautiful looking larger frame wool breeds. I would love to cross some of my katahdins with a Suffolk. Just not a real good idea in the south unless I can keep close tabs on them by famacha scoring them on a regular basis. Don't have a chute and time to do that right now. Not to mention I would probably still need to shear them.

The sugar thing is relatively speaking when desciding between time of day to cut, 3rd vs 1st cutting and stage of growth. Definitely not a good idea to switch straight over to high sugar/carbohydrate hay, just like it isn't good to give 2 lbs of grain right away to a lactating ewe. Need to give the rumen time to adjust. I've got a few cool articles kicking around that illustrate all of this. Will share them once I have a chance. You are correct though, the rumen needs a significant amount of fiber to keep it working correctly. That's why they always suggest planting something like rye grass with brassicas when being used in a grazing scenario.

It's a "dust seal", technically. I think, new, they worked pretty well, maybe, but as the joints, ball joints, hubs wear out, the seals tend to get beat up pretty badly.
They aren't terribly expensive, doesn't hurt to replace them.

In the '80s, Dana never used them on any front axle.
