Herdwicks - The Sheep and their Shepherds

(1 review) Write a Review

Filmed in the Autumn of 2019 the DVD features the Tup and Draft Ewe sale from Cockermouth Auction Mart and provides a visual index of the majority of tups which made over £1000.  There are highlights from the Draft Ewe sale including coverage of the presale show.  We take the cameras into the the heart of the lake District and go on farm with Anthony Hartley at Turner Hall and Peter Bland at Knott House. Isaac Benson features as we visit him and his family at the The Lakeland farm visitor centre and no Herdwick DVD would be complete without an interview with the Queen of Herdwicks - Jean Wilson.

    Herdwicks. The sheep and their shepherds

    Posted by Ewan Kinghorn on 26th Dec 2019

    Good DVD. Accents can be a bit difficult to follow but enjoyed all aspects inc sales and especially interview and viewing of practical aspects of sheepwork. A section on lambing would be a welcome addition.
