It's May and the boys are tending sheep. Ruth starts dairying, Alex gets involved with beekeeping and Peter learns how to make cricket bats.
Once the sheep give birth, they are sheered with an electric sheerer. This sped up the process for the Victorian farmer. In order to speed up the process, Peter and Alex bring out something that their land agent invented to help the farmers from hand cranking the sheers. The inexperienced sheers discover that their fleece is infected with maggots.
Alex gets help with a bee swarm in order to start up bee keeping while Peter learns to carve a cricket bat. Peter and Alex take in a game of cricket where Peter has an embarrassing situation.
Ruth starts operating the dairy in order to make cheese.
