Students made ewes of their training at an annual lambing event in a St Albans college.
Becoming experts in their field, agriculture students helped farm manager Del Knowles to deliver 19 new lambs at the Oaklands College Lambing Weekend on March 16 and 17.
Ten thousand visitors flocked to the lambing barns and enjoyed a variety of Farmers’ Market refreshments over the weekend, including fresh apple juice and locally sourced honey.
There was also a children’s Farm Trail around the college, which included activity sheets and stickers.
Del said: “This year represented another hugely successful year for lambing at Oaklands College, with our agriculture students gaining valuable experience of live-lambing and community event management.”
