What We Do

Millions of lambs die on Australian farms every year within 48 hours after birth. Ewes, particularly in the case of twins or triplets, can struggle to care for all their lambs. This is due to no fault of their own but instead to the industry’s selective breeding for multiple births and the lack of sufficient shelter on farms from the extreme winter weather conditions.
