Lambing season in Full Swing on the Payette
Emmett--Sheep operators are busy shearing winter wool, while herders work around the clock at the lambing sheds on the Payette River west of Emmett.
February to May is traditional lambing season at Soulen lambing sheds where spring days and nights are spent delivering new born lambs. The Soulens will add hundreds of lambs to their herd over the next month. When the season is over more than 5-thousand head of sheep will summer in the high country.
