Lambing: A Day in the Shed

Join Farmer Tim to learn the essentials of lambing
29th March 2019


Description

Join Farmer Tim to learn the essentials of lambing and find out what goes on in a day in the lambing shed. In this hands-on lambing course you’ll learn how to:

  • Care for pregnant sheep.
  • Recognise labour, common problems and unusual behaviour in labour.
  • Deliver after-care of the ewe and lambs.

This day will consist of a mixture of class-room learning and time observing the ewes in the lambing shed, the format of the day will be dictated by the ewes in the shed.

We have done everything possible to give the best chance of lambing during the course but we cannot 100% guarantee it.

Our lambing courses are suitable for everyone, whether you have sheep and are planning to have lambs or just want to come and experience the magic of the lambing shed.

Directions

Humble by Nature is based just outside of Monmouth in the Wye Valley. Easily accessible, situated close to the M4, M5 and M50.

From the North, Monmouth, Ross-on-Wye & M50

Take the A40 Southbound exiting at Monmouth, follow signposts to the B4293 directing you through two left turns towards Trellech/ Chepstow. After the series of bends the road straightens and at the top of the hill, with views on your right, take the first left hand turn, signposted towards Penallt. Continue for approximately 1 mile, taking the next available left - signposted 'The Craig/ No through rd'. Humble by Nature is the first entrance on the left.

From the east, Bristol & the M4

Exiting the M4 towards Chepstow and the Old Severn Crossing, follow signposts along the A466 to Chepstow Racecourse. At the Racecourse take the first exit at the roundabout signposted B4293 to Devauden. Continue along this road passing through Devauden, Llanishen and Trelleck. Almost 3 miles after Trellech, with magnificent views on your left, take a sharp right signposted Penallt. Continue for approximately 1 mile, taking the next available left - signposted 'The Craig/ No through rd'. Humble by Nature is the first entrance on the left.

If using a Sat Nav please do not take the turning marked 'Old Church Penallt'. The turning for 'The Craig' is 100m away on the same side of the road as you leave Penallt heading towards Monmouth.
