Women in Agriculture: Argyll – Practical Lambing


Are you prepared for your upcoming lambing?

With lambing coming up and sheep margins being squeezed, making sure your lambing is a smooth one can make a big difference!

The focus of this meeting is practical lambing, with a good blend of theory and practical experience.

SAC Consulting Sheep Specialist, Poppy Frater, will guide us through what stands between your pregnant ewe and a healthy lamb?

Key topics will include:

  • Colostrum management including sourcing and storage
  • Nutrition
  • Condition scoring
  • Neonatal management

Attendees will have the opportunity to practice difficult deliveries with the aid of a lambing simulator.

Although the practical session focuses on lambing, most of the content is transferable to calvings and other farmed livestock.

This meeting is suitable for all levels of lambing experience from beginner to expert.  All participants will leave this workshop with plenty of hints and tips for a successful lambing and calving.

As this meeting includes a practical element please bring waterproofs and wellies suitable for disinfection.

If you are pregnant or think you may be, it is advised you do not take part in the practical afternoon session.

This is a free event where lunch and refreshments will be provided.  Please use the booking form below to secure your place.
