Pupil lambing their first lambThis year at Oakberrow we have increased the number of ewes we are lambing.  The breeds we have are Ryelands, Coloured Ryelands, Greyface Dartmoors and Texel/Beltex ewes.  

They will be scanned in December and then lambing course dates will be posted on the web, but it looks like we will start from the first week in February through to the first week in March 2018.

We enjoy lambing it is always a great feeling seeing the new borns and how they develop.  

Our courses cover all aspects of lambing and we have had great feedback from previous years saying how much they learnt and really enjoyed the experience of attending a course at Oakberrow.

We already have a few people put their names down for lambing courses, so if you are interested please get in touch.  This year we are putting in a 12 hour course as well as the daytime lambing.
