Course Details

The course covers:

  • Preparation for lambing
  • Recognise the signs of lambing
  • Normal birth
  • Lambing the ewe
  • Dealing with abnormal presentations
  • Aftercare

Lambing is an essential skill for anyone who works with sheep. Our Lambing Techniques course will help you assess and learn how far to go before you call the vet out, 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.

We cover the whole of the UK, Ireland and rest of Europe, with venues near you. 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.


Testimonials

Stephanie 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.”
