See our event FAQ’s:

We have 341 ewes due to give birth over the lambing weekends.

637 lambs are expected over the lambing period.

The colours on their backs tell our shepherd how many lambs each ewe is expecting so he can regulate their feed:-

  • Red = single
  • No mark = twins
  • Triplets = green
  • Quads = 2 x green

Our flock are Highlander’s and the sires are either Highlanders, Suffolk or Primera.

Ideally we let the ewes get on with giving birth on their own, but we have a team of staff and students with them 24/7 so there’s always someone on hand to help.

Some sheep harbour organisms which could affect a pregnancy so we suggest that ladies don’t visit if they’re pregnant. We encourage everyone to wash or sanitise their hands after touching any animal. For more information please click here.

There are several food outlets on campus serving hot and cold meals, snacks and drinks & we will also be hosting a Farmers Market once again. Reaseheath College is a cashless campus, card payment is available.

Our Student Association team will direct you to available free parking, just a short walk from our lambing sheds. They will be volunteering their time in return for donations to the college RAG charities which this year include Hope House Children’s Hospice and Body Positive.
