During your time in the shed you will hopefully witness a live birth, we would love to guarantee this but for obvious reasons we can’t. You will get to see all the sheep getting fed and any lambs that require hand feeding.

Full Day Lambing Course

8 Spaces Available per day
13 years + (under 16 must be accompanied by a paying adult)
£95 per person

Come and experience life on a Scottish hill sheep farm at the busiest time of year…….Lambing time!

You will join the Lennox family, Bobby, Anne, Kay and Dougie (as seen on TV – BBC2 – “This Farming Life”), get hands-on learning through a typical farming day, experience all about the different aspects of lambing.

The informal, action packed day will include the theory of the full breeding cycle, caring for pregnant sheep, recognising labour, common problems and taking part in the everyday tasks at lambing time.

We have approximately 1500 ewes here at Shantron and you should experience at least one live birth during the day (but as with any animal, nothing can be guaranteed). If births do happen during the day, you will have the opportunity to get really hands-on.

This experience is suitable for complete beginners – no previous stock handling experience is required – with a keen interest into what really happens at lambing time. It is also an informative course for sheep keepers with smaller flocks and limited experience who are looking to learn more about lambing time.

There will also be plenty time in the day to handle young lambs, and feed any lambs that require hand feeding.

Included in your full day Lambing Course experience will be a home cooked farmhouse lunch cooked by Anne.

Spaces are limited with only 8 places available on each day, this ensures that you get the best hands on lambing experience possible as well as ensuring the well-being of the sheep.

Get hands on at Lambing time!

This is a wonderful opportunity to spend a few hours in our lambing shed. You

will be able to get involved and help Bobby in the sheds within a typical daily routine in the lambing shed. Feeding sheep, bedding the pens, feeding any lambs that require hand feeding, moving the mothers and their lambs to the fields, walking the fields to check on the sheep and monitoring the sheep.

During your time in the shed you will hopefully witness a live birth, we would love to guarantee this but for obvious reasons we can’t. There will however be plenty of time to handle young lambs and share in this rare opportunity to be up close and hand on with this half day experience.
