Lambing Course

March 13 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Practical Lambing course. Held at a farm near Sturminster Newton – details given on booking. Places are limited so book early to avoid disappointment.

 

Participants will learn how to prepare their flock for lambing. Using a lambing simulator, we will teach people when and how to safely intervene with a lambing ewe.

 

Participants will learn how to correct simple malpresentations. Instruction will be given on how to correctly use a stomach tube in lambs, how to tail, castrate and inject lambs. We will discuss all the common problems that crop up in ewes and lambs in the lambing period and how to manage and prevent them. This course is ideal for the small holder or new staff in the commercial flock.

 

£100 inc VAT, lunch included.
