Hi guys, I'm trying to get a lambing placement sorted between the 29th March and the 19th April and kinda struggling! So bit of a long shot but wondered if anyone knew of any places available? Anywhere is fine as long as theres accommodation!
I'm going to be applying for vet med this year, if in the chances I dont get lambing will I be at a disadvantage?
Thanks!

Have you tried the NSA list? Google 'National Sheep Association work experience' - I got both of my placements through them last year

Lambing is a placement that a lot of people end up doing, but it's by no means a requirement. People certainly get in without having done it Some universities value wex more than others, but as long as you've done another farmy placement you should be fine. It's also worth mentioning that some wex forms allow you to include planned work experience, so even if you don't end up going this year, you can still put it down when you apply if you book a placement in advance.

Hope that helped

I have I only found out about it a couple weeks back but been keeping an eye on it! I think my time constraints are making it harder than it should be
Thanks for the help! I'll no doubt be looking for lambing next year as well since I have a year out to look forward to

Don't panic if you don't get it - the only farm work I had was a week on a dairy farm and I've had 3 interviews, and so far have 2 offers.

Not specifically a placement, but the Royal Veterinary College are running lambing days on the 7th and 13th of April. It's probably not the kind of thing you were hoping for, but it will give you lambing experience if you can't find anywhere else, and as you could us the other time to do another placement?

The only farm experience I had last year was a week on a dairy too, but I got all rejections and it was my work experience that let me down, so trying to cover all bases this time round!

From what I can remember, there was no mention of it on the website, I only found out about it through correspondence with a woman who was organising Dairy Day when I enquired about that. That email should be on the RVC website, so you could try that? Sorry I can't be much more specific :/

Would it be possible for me to get experience any time between 29th March and 12th April?
