Take the Lead

Sheep worrying is something we hear about occasionally through the media but we don't usually know much about it or even take much notice. Yet sheep worrying has a devastating effect not only on the animals but also on the farmers who care for them. Produced by Farming And Countryside Education in partnership with Farmers Guardian and the National Sheep Association, "Take the Lead" provides a package of educational information and activities so that pupils can learn more about sheep and their important role and use some of the fun resources before being introduced to the topic of sheep worrying.
