LAMBING WEEK 2013
Residential Course,15th - 19th March 2013
It is once again our intention to hold our popular residential lambing week. This is a fully hands on, practical lambing course for smallholders with a serious interest in sheep. This is now firmly established in the calendar as the “Rolls Royce” of sheep husbandry courses. Covering all aspects of the lambing time routine, the emphasis will be on lamb survival and animal welfare.
Students will develop sufficient expertise to successfully manage their own flock at lambing, or to gain extra income by “contract lambing” on other farms.
Places are strictly limited and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.
Previous courses have attracted clients from as far afield as Southern France, Jersey, America, and the North of Scotland.
