West Lodge Farm expecting 203 lambs this Feb/March!

Posted on

West Lodge Farm Park is looking forward to a busy February and March. All of the Ewes had an ultrasound scan in December 2014 and confirmed that 103 of the ewes were expecting!  From a herd of Herdwicks, South Downs, Mules and Suffolks, the farm is expecting 203 lambs in total.

Farmer Ed said  “We are expecting over 23 sets of triplets or quads so there will be plenty of little lambs that will need to be bottle fed. Ewes only have 2 teats so can only feed two of their lambs. Firstly, we try to put the lamb with another ewe who either has only one lamb or who has lost a lamb, if this doesn’t work we hand rear them to give them the best chance of survival.”

The farm is open all year. Opening times and prices can be found on their website www.westlodgeruralcentre.co.uk
