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 runs from 10:00 until 16:00 and covers:
- 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.
