Join Farmer Tim to learn the essentials of lambing and find out what goes on in a day in the lambing shed. This hands-on lambing course will give you a good overview of lambing and you’ll learn how to:
The format of the day will be dictated by the ewes in the shed. Most of your time will be spent observing the ewes in the lambing shed.
We have done everything possible to give the best chance of lambing during the course but we cannot 100% guarantee it. There are lots of jobs to help with in the lambing shed, including feeding any orphan lambs, so there will be plenty to do.
Our lambing courses are suitable for everyone, whether you have sheep and are planning to lamb or just want to come and experience the magic of the lambing shed.
Today you’ll learn how to: care for pregnant sheep; recognise labour; spot common problems and unusual behaviour, after-care of ewes and lambs.
While you're in the lambing shed you'll be spotting, monitoring and (hopefully) watching labour.
The course will finish with tea and cake and the opportunity to ask any further questions.

I'm not one to go OTT or dramatic about things, but I think quite honestly that it was one of the best experiences (outside my own family of course) that I have had. The whole day from hospitality, lunch, and of course the main event with Tim exceeded my expectations enormously.
It was "everything it says on the tin" and heaps more! Farmer Tim exudes quiet confidence, passion for his work and cheery enthusiasm in sharing his experience and knowledge.
One of the best days of my life! Caring for lambs, feeding them and seeing one being born - a truly amazing day that I will never forget. Highly recommended!
