Pig work experience

Hi,
I’m applying to university for vet med in October and was wondering if anyone knows any pig farms that offer work experience? I’m not picky about location- just anywhere in England.

Don’t think I can put emails or numbers up here but let me know if you are interested at all. Most of these are indoor farms that do tail docking and teeth clipping so just have a think if you are okay with some of those farming practices.

One thing I would like to note is that it’s great that you want a pig placement for your application and not many students have it but it is not neccisary if you don’t get one!
