We always get asked about our British farm and the type of British breeds we farm here in the US, this week Parker's are Lambing, Just like we did in the UK, here is an interesting lambing question we get asked every season
How many lambs are born?
The number of lambs born by each ewe varies from breed to breed. First time mums are more likely to give birth to one lamb, although twins are not uncommon. There are some breeds of sheep that average more than two lambs per litter.
But while lambing is an incredibly intense time in farming, the work starts well in advance. To ensure that their flock will cope with particular types of terrain or climate, or can produce a specific end product, British farmers have to carefully examine the characteristics of ewes and rams when preparing the breeding process, adding ‘genetic expertise’ to their broad list of skills.
There’s nothing quite like the magic of lambing, making it the ideal way to introduce children to farming and the countryside.
