Sheep planning/ pasture rotation

We’ve been thinking about our pasture management plans for the autumn. Several factors are important when thinking about where to put things from September to January; we like to keep the birds and bunnies on higher ground, and we have to keep various groups of sheep separate. So the plan is as follows.

July – September. Birds and bunnies move to the camping area which has been rested since early this year.

Sheep stay put on the main pasture.

September – Nov

We are unsure if this will work or of they will jump fences, but we are going to give it a go.
