    For lambing have a look at NSA, farmers post on there looking for students to help during lambing time http://www.nationalsheep.org.uk/next-generation/

    If you go on menu and click on jobs and work experience you can sign up for an email when the farmers posts go live, depending on where you are lambing can begin November/December and can go through to the end of march/April.

    Husbandry - dairy farms are a good one, if you have a good search on Google you'll find some dairy farms, best bet with dairy is for you to pop down to the farm and ask in person as they never tend to answer their phones because they're rarely in the house.

    Horses - any riding stables will do or rescue centres for horses if you have one nearby

    Dogs and cats - if you're over 18 then rescue centres are a good one, otherwise boarding kennels/catteries, at a push you could help a dog walker but the others are better.

    If you can get any pig or poultry then it's a bonus, poultry are a pain to get into though, even as a vet student it's a struggle!
