Lambcam

 

The lambing season has finished for 2020 here at St Fagans National Museum of History. It’s been a tough few weeks with all that the weather could throw at us but we have welcomed over 300 lambs into the world. We hope that you have enjoyed the highs and lows along the way with us – see you next year.

Here’s some praise for all the brilliant members of staff looking after the sheep and lambs, if I were a lamb or a sheep I would definitely want to live at St Fagans. Well done we’re all really enjoying your efforts Watching you on the webcam.

Wow only 5 away from 300 lambs what a busy time for all the had working dedicated farming staff and all whilst being live streamed 24/7 to the world (bet not many can say that!!) I love that it’s in an area accessible for visitors and that we have the bonus of lambcam during lambing season.
Myself and the children have loved our visits to st Fagans even though we only usually visit the farm and park. As a childcare worker this is very educational for the children (myself too) and the farmers are always very polite and informative- answering the children’s many questions.
So a huge thankyou From us all. We will enjoy the rest of this seasons lambcam (a real godsend at the mo!)

Nice to have lambing in a close unit but try the robots of doing it on a hill farm with snow. Wind rain .

Hi Linda

Glad to hear you have been enjoying the Lambing season at St Fagans with your family.

The umbilical cord usually breaks by itself during the birth process with sheep. Occasionally you might see the farm team breaking a cord if it's still attached.
