Scanning - How did you get there? How can you improve?

Overview

Scanning time is possibly one of the most important dates on a sheep farmer's calendar. While lambing percentage tells you what you have achieved, scanning tells you how you got there, and gives some pointers on 'how to improve'.

Tectra looks at the scanning index, lamb survival and dry weight calculations and also discusses the important role of rams in this area.
