Are you an experienced shepherd that need a refresher, or a flock-keeper who is just starting, or a college student? Well then, this course is for you!
Our training groups are small, aiming to maximise your learning experience. Learn primarily through practical tuition and some video demonstrations. The course content is:
- Preparation for lambing
- Recognise the signs of lambing
- Normal birth
- Lambing the ewe
- Dealing with abnormal presentations
Lambing is an essential skill for anyone who works with sheep. Our LANTRA Lambing Techniques course will help you assess and learn how far to go when it comes to lambing. Understand what you can tackle yourselves and when you need to bring in veterinary assistance. There will be background information so you can prepare for and recognise the signs of lambing. A simulator will be used for the practical activities.

"On behalf of Elliott and myself, thank you for training us on Friday. Both Elliott and I learnt a considerable amount and took a lot of information from the day, which we hope to put into practice. I am currently reviewing all the information from Lambing 2021 and this course will assist with this process. We look forward to working with you again in the future."
Helen Hall, Ceredigion, Wales Helen Hall:
"I thoroughly enjoyed the day. I love the interaction in the morning as it made me feel part of the day . The afternoon session was amazing as it was hands on and every stage was discussed. By doing this course has made me feel a lot more confident about doing my own lambing. I would highly recommend.”
