Lambing Sunday event at Bishop Burton College


Hundreds of people flocked to a Spring farming event at one of the country’s leading agricultural colleges.

The Lambing Sunday event is designed to increase interest in farming and show people who no longer work on the land what life is like on a modern working farm.

Parents and children were able to watch lambs being born, taking their first few steps and bonding with their mothers. They met members of the college’s working farm, saw farm machinery in action and toured both indoor and outdoor animal management units.
