    Hi everyone. So I'm interested in being a vet. However I'm struggling to find work experience and so I was wondering if anyone had any lambing/ piggery/ poultry contacts they could pass on to me? It can be anywhere and I can drive now! Yay!

    Also I'd be happy to pass on any contacts I know of if anyone is looking. I know lots of equine/ dairy/ wildlife/ small animals

    Many thanks Laura

    The list will open later in the year, but it's great. I've used it for all my lambing placements.

    Where are you from? I'm looking for dairy experience but can't find anything near me.

    As Nessie162 said, check the lambing list in October/November. It's probably a bit too early to start organising that now.

    With respect to the others, you could try contacting some agricultural colleges (they'll have their own animals but if they can't take you then they might have contacts for places that will). Otherwise you can try looking on farming forums, or contacting slaughterhouses to see if they can give you some contacts (unlikely buy worth a try).
