Lambcam: Lambcam

Lambcam

Lambcam is brought to you by a small but dedicated team. Once things get going there are experienced staff on hand during the day and through the night. As well as the area you can see on camera, there are separate nursery sheds for the ewes and their lambs. The team will always assess the needs of the whole flock and prioritise the most vulnerable. A very sick newborn lamb that needs tube feeding may be taking precedence over a ewe in labour. Remember that there may be a staff member just out of shot watching on.

How is the Mum and her lamb who had a difficult berth around 4pm today!

Hi Karen - the ewe with the E on her back belongs to Emma (our shepherd). She had a couple of pedigree Hill Radnor ewes that came for a special play date with our Hill Radnor ram.....

I feel so privileged to have just watched twin lambs being born (11.42pm Monday 11th) - such a treat and so lovely to see two new little lives coming into the world. Mum attended to them beautifully before they were taken to their pen. I saw twins being born on the first night of lambcam too, within ten minutes of watching! It can be a bit tense waiting for the births and hoping all will be ok, but with happy outcomes like these it leaves such a heartwarming feeling. Thank you for giving us lambcam!

Hi Kate - Unfortunately the second lamb had non-survivable abnormalities so only lived for a short time. The ewe and first lamb are doing well this morning.

I was at the farm today and saw an assisted birth around midday, the ewe gave birth to twins and the second needed help breathing to start with - it looked like mouth to mouth on the little lamb! It started to breathe and was moved to the stall with its mother. Just wondering if both mother and lambs were doing ok?

Brilliant news about the "Blue harness" ewe delivering triplets safely and no internal damage to her womb. Can't believe so many lambs have been born to date this year. Lots of big lambs too as watched quite a few require assistance from the shepherds/ess. Hopefully will visit next week if weather stays dry x
