LambCam

Welcome to LambCam 2016! We’ve got 37 ewes in Jo’s Barn and the lambs have started arriving with plenty more to come.

In February and March each year, visitors can come and see the births, newborns and mums in the Lamb Nursery in Jo’s Barn, or keep an eye on all the excitement from home via LambCam – available 24/7, because lambs don’t know what the time is and don’t keep office hours!

See you soon!

Matt, Sue, Will, Roy and the Lambing Team at Mead Open Farm

Thank you again Jan for explaining this to me. Think I may try & get some sleep now. I think I might be hooked on this when I can’t sleep. Wish it was on all year round so I can watch something when I don’t sleep.

Roy moved the one who had just delivered first – it was one of her lambs he took as she is having more than one (going by the dot on her). Looks like he had to get the other ewe to keep still to let the foster lamb latch on….just a matter of time to see if she will accept it. It makes it easier for mums who have triplets as ewes only have two teats.

Roy is fostering one of the new born lambs onto the mum who lost her own – hopefully she will accept it.

Will he be back? Seems strange he left the dead lamb & the ewe with her lamb. I thought they moved them as quick as possible into a pen.
