Started Lambing at the Uni Farm

Started my first night at the Uni farm tonight! As usual they were a bit(!) unorganised and called me in at 6.30pm for a 7.30pm start but managed to get there - security code didn't work but should all be sorted now :P

It's a Performance Recorded Flock so we do research which is all Home Office approved and so if any of the ewes need help, pain killers or medicine we can just call a vet.
It also means that we have to record any medicines we give them, the research means we do data collection about the ewes and lambs, how much feed they have, how much bedding etc etc.

Going to be spending nights for the next 3 months here and I'm really looking forward to it!
