In this very hands-on course each day will be different depending on which ewes are lambing at the time. Year-round shepherding will be covered along with lowland and hill farming. You will cover zoonosis, disease in humans and sheep, feeding and body condition before lambing. You will learn about caring for the ewe both before and after birth, lamb fostering and lamb survival techniques as well as difficult births.
