I'm not the best at culling but I work from the point of veiw a good ewe is worth the effort to keep. If shes healthy and productive who cares how old she is! Good means productive but you can check things like her udder condition, and teeth to make sure you're not keeping her longer than shes worth with a new problem. Culling does make the flock, easier lambing and more lambs loaded on the truck. I'm going to have to cull hard this year, not many pets to consider, just the 5 black sheep and "Babe" the cisarian survivor my neice raised. Not bad outa 200 ewes.
