Collection and processing the first spring shrouds

October 25th, 2011  |  Published in field research, practice

Tepi, Adam and I visited Tony on the farm and encountered the ewe, lambs and echidna post-decomposition. the ewe was still full of maggots, but we removed it anyway and Adam used the steel rake to drag the putrid body away from the shroud site. It was a very smelly visit, and Tepi complained of the smell. Adam and I persisted in the heat and wind, it was very hard work.We left the ewe shroud to dry out and at home I processed the 3 lambs and the echidna in vinegar.
