Keeping children safe during lambing

Lambing is an exciting time seeing new-born lambs either in their pens or lambing outside and taking their first steps.

Equally exciting is how young children love lambing time where they begin to understand the busy time, and how they are keen to help.

With it being such a busy time and all hands are welcome, this simple series of cartoons show how important children look out for health and safety matters during lambing, so they have a safe and fun time during this period.

We encourage you to sit with your youngsters to watch the short video to emphasise the importance of health and safety on the farm or croft.
