A Leicestershire farmer whose ewes are just about to start their lambing season has installed CCTV cameras to make sure all runs smoothly.
Mr Pegram said the cameras are a big help
John Pegram from Clipstone says that the new technology is a "godsend" and is a big improvement on having to get up in the middle of the night.
Mr Pegram can now watch the sheep from the comfort of his living room, on a monitor he has set up.
He is hoping to install more cameras in other spots around the farm.
"Not having to get up at night is a godsend, it's lovely and I'd reccommend it to anyone," said Mr Pegram.
"It's especially good when the ewe starts lambing as you don't have to come up, put the lights on, poke your head over the door as it upsets and disturbs them and you can sometimes get a bit of trouble with the lamb."
Mr Pegram believes it is an idea solution to farmers who do not have much help.
