    Hi to all,

    Currently looking into dairy farms in Devon to do 2 weeks of EMS the coming summer. I know there are quite a few, but was wondering if anybody knows of any nice dairy farmers that are willing to take EMS students and provide accommodation?

    Thanks.


    P.S. EMS requirements are a traditional parlour (not robotic) and a minumum of 80 milking cows.

    Are you a vet student?
    Where abouts in Devon are you?

    Yes, I am indeed.

    I am not actually located in Devon, I am international, but my search is restricted to the area as that is where my other placements are based. Preferably nearer to Exeter but I don`t mind as such, as far as I can get there easily by train/bus.

    My family live in Devon. Can you hire a car? I am struggling to think of any farms that are on a bus stop or even within a mile or two of one.

    What about contacting an agricultural college or Uni with a working farm as they may be more likely to have accommodation and be used to hosting students.

    Does your vet school have a list of previous EMS placements you can use to help?

    Thanks for a suggestion, I will check what agricultural colleges there are!

    Yes it does, but the list seems to be very outdated. I have been contacting placements from it - but no positive results so far.
