The course covers:
- Preparation for birth
- Recognise the signs of imminent birth
- Normal birth
- Helping the animal give birth
- Dealing with abnormal presentations
Assisting the animal giving birth is an essential skill for anyone who works with cattle, sheep and goats. Our Calving, Lambing and Kidding Techniques course will help you assess and learn how far to go before you call the vet out, when it comes to your animals giving birth. 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 giving birth. A simulator will be used for the practical activities.
LANTRA certification for this course is possible. LANTRA as the awarding body, are recognised by Ofqual, SQA and Qualification Wales.
We cover the whole of the UK and Ireland, with venues near you. We work around you to find the most suitable course dates.
Your course will be delivered by not simply a teacher, but by a Masterclass Trainer who has nearly 30 years’ experience as a veterinary clinician and practices all disciplines of farm animal medicine.
TestimonialsStephanie Thompson, Welshpool, Wales Stephanie Thompson:
“Can I please pass mine and Chloe’s thanks to Sotirios for such a great training day, we started the day completely clueless about lambing and by the end of it both agreed we felt capable of aiding a delivery and knowing when we need the vet! We both enjoyed the day very much, have expanded our knowledge hugely and felt empowered from the day.”Catherine Hancock, Haverfordwest, Wales Catherine Hancock:
"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.”
