The flock already in Ponidzie.
Blackface sheep which are to be grazed on xerothermic grasslands as part of the LIFE+ project are already in Ponidzie. They have been transported from breeders in Bieszczady in the first days of May by a specialized car suitable for animal transportation. The flock took the journey well and are currently kept quarantined in a sheepfold prepared for them. The first few days, the sheep were fed only hay and now they also receive concentrated feed and graze on fresh grass. They are also getting used to the electric fence which is going to be used to separate the areas where grazing will take place. After the end of the quarantine, the sheep will be divided into smaller flocks and transported to different locations, where the grazing will be conducted.
