It has been steady with things to do around here like usual. Last week we chopped our corn silage for the year and we started our September lambing group on Friday. Tomorrow we plan to wean our first 2 family groups from our July lambing group. Below is a quick video we took in the lambing barn this evening. Like always, keep us in mind if you’re needing replacement ewe lambs. We had a lot of demand for spring born ewe lambs but the September born ewe lambs and the November born ewes lambs have not been spoken for yet.

08/12/2023

Open Polypay ewes. We exposed these ewes to lamb in September and also November. They did not breed to lamb out of season so they do not fit our program. Some of these ewes may not breed. There are 21 head total. $175 per ewe. Message us if you're interested.

08/07/2023

Sharing an old video, it’s been a while since we’ve posted! Right now we are in the final stretch of our July lambing group. So far everyone has made it through the heat and is growing nicely. We finished up baling our 3rd cutting alfalfa and the oat straw this past week. In the next week we’ll be putting rams in to breed for January lambing and will be ultrasounding our November group.

A few people have asked about the new buildings we built, so we thought we would add a few pictures and comments about them. They are 42' wide 128' long 14' tall. They have 16' over head doors on each end for a drive through feed alley. We feed on the inside and also along the south outside wall. There are divided into 4 pens. Three pens that hold 75 ewes, and 1 pen that holds 25 ewes. So far, we really like these buildings and they provide our sheep with exactly what we wanted them to. The biggest down side to this design is having to lock the ewes up each morning to drive the tractor through to feed them. It does not take long, but it adds a few minutes to chores for each of the buildings. The air quality in these buildings has been great with the 8' side curtains. We do have fans in the buildings to help move some hot air in the summer.
A little update on what is happening at Hurley Polypay Sheep Farm currently.
* Finishing up our November lambing ewes and Starting a December lambing group.
* Planning to shear the January lambing ewes the end of this week.
* Ultrasounding the March lambing ewe lambs soon.
* The September born ewe lambs will be ready to head to their new homes around the first of the year. They are looking good!
* All the November and December born ewe lambs are spoken for, but we are taking deposits on January and spring born ewe lambs.

We filled our bin with corn this week. We use the bins in the picture to store multiple different ingredients we use to feed our lambs out and to add to our corn silage and haylage based diets for the ewes. We use corn, oats, soyhull pellets, soybean meal, and a protein supplement pellet. Each stage of production uses different ingredients, depending on what the nutritional needs of the sheep are in that stage.

10/11/2022

Harvest is in full swing here like it may be for many of you. We finished up combining beans and have around ten days left on corn.
Our next lambing group will start November 10th, which will be here before we know it! We'll be weaning our oldest groups of September born lambs in the next couple of weeks (pictured below). We'll have a group of mature ewes lambing in January/February and the rams were put in last week with our ewe lambs for a March 1st start date (pictured in the video below).

This was our first time lambing a group in July and over all, it went really well. We knew there would be challenges lambing this time of year, but we managed through them and learned a few things to make next time even better. We have a group lambing in September and we will finish our 2022 lambing season with another group in November. Let us know if you're looking for fall born ewe lambs. We have some already spoken for so don't wait long!

Spring for us has been busy. We got our crops in, building pads built, construction started on 2 curtain barns, kids out of school for the summer, a quick trip to visit some friends and mentors, and ewes just keep on lambing. Our January ewe lambs are off to their new homes and the later groups are coming along nicely. We have three groups left to wean and will have a group start lambing July 15. We've got our January lambing ewes bred back to lamb in September and will be putting CIDRs in this week for a November lambing group.

01/31/2022

Many people have asked for pictures and videos of our bunk lids and want information on how they work. Here is a short video of us feeding ewes in our lambing barn. The ewes get fed on the inside of the building first. Then, we open the lids and feed them along the outside of the building. The lids can also be opened with the hydraulics of our skid loader if the electricity is out.

About Us

We are Kyle and Carrie Hurley and we own and operate Hurley Polypay Sheep Farm. Kyle grew up on a farm raising grain, cattle, and a few sheep. Carrie grew up on a farm raising grain and cattle. In 2013, we got married, and, later that year, decided to invest into raising sheep. Since then, we have focused on improving the sheep we raise and investing into facilities to make raising sheep less labor intensive and profitable. We find the Polypay breed to stand out among the rest with their diversity for prolificacy and meat production. We hope to improve the knowledge and production of the sheep industry by supplying top breeding stock to other commercial sheep producers.
