Sheep – showing their story

Looking at livestock can be interesting. Eliza Emmett uses lots of ways to help farm visitors to understand the story behind what they see on her family sheep farm.

Comparing size of sheep shows their rapid growth, but comparing that with human growth really makes the point. Using a simple farming calendar helps to explain how to feed a sheep all year round and how much one sheep eats in a day.

The task of the week can be made fascinating but other tasks like weighing are easy to get farm visitors involved in all year round.
