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.”
Angerland Park and Ride provided free shuttle transportation from near the University of Hertfordshire and the event was sponsored by SA Law.
More than 300 new lambs are expected to be born at the college during the season, which runs from February to April.
