As the weather is turning hot and muggy, watch out for fly strike, as it is very common if you have not shaun or sprayed/dipped your flock.
Make sure there is enough good grass in your paddocks/fields. As the year continues the grass quality will reduce, either cut long steamy grass. Or if you are short top your flock up with mineral buckets

I tend to take the wool of my client hands when I shear the sheep, then take to the wool marketing board, where they just tell me what is wrong with it so they can pay less for it!!!
Knitting or spinning the wool makes good use of it or use it for installation (if you dont mind the smell)
