The first week is spent preparing for lambing, setting up the cubicles and the pens and rounding up the sheep to bring them into the lambing sheds.

This time of year, there are about 340 pregnant ewes, and they are older and more experienced.

Lambing starts around the 12th of the month and continues for four weeks.  In general, most lambs are turned out into the fields at 2 days old.
