Lots of Lambs for Local Farm

CREATED Apr. 5, 2013

One local farmer could have a record-breaking year on his hands. Doug Shaw of Shawhaven Farm in Mason, MI tells us one of his lambs gave birth to quintuplets last week. Agriculture experts say this is a fairly rare event.

If one unusual set of births wasn’t enough, another ewe on his farm gave birth to a set of quadruplets a couple of days ago.   

You can get a peek at the lambs yourself during Shawhaven farm's Lamb Festival set for the weekends of April 13th and April 20th.
