North Shropshire College’s Spring Lambing Day 2016

North Shropshire College’s Spring Lambing Day 2016a

North Shropshire College (NSC) will be holding its increasingly popular Spring Laming Day on 20th March 2016; the College will be opening up its Walford Campus to visitors. Last year’s Spring Lambing Day attracted over 4000 visitors, who visited the College’s farm, animal care centre and engineering department. The farm’s 200 strong dairy herd took part in many milking displays and demonstrated the Fullwood Merlin milking robot, but the stars of the show were the lambs. Most born in the preceding month and some born on the day.

Many of the popular attractions from last year will be making a welcome return in 2016, those returning are: Whitchurch Dog Display Team, Shropshire Fire and Rescue Service, Archery, NSC’s Robot Milking Display, Face Painting, Treasure Hunt etc. The extremely popular Animal Care Department at the Harris Centre, welcomed visitors last year who crowded around the Meerkat enclosure, and met the College’s wide array of reptiles, insects and spiders in the exotics room and even saw the College’s many Birds of Prey.
