Looking for opportunities for summer/autumn calving


I am currently a 3rd-year vet student from the Royal (Dick) Veterinary College of the University of Edinburgh. I am keen to learn more about large animals and I managed to book some clinical farm placement, but I am still lacking in calving experiences. I was wondering if there anyone would be able to offer me some opportunities to book a 2-3 weeks placement. Ideally it could start from Late June to July (but my time is flexible if these date doesnt match).

I am hardworking with a 'can-do' attitude. I wish to be able to make the most out of my placement. If you wish to verify my working performance I could provide contact of other farmers/vets that I have previously worked with as a reference.

Looking forward to hear from you! Any advices would be great! Thank you !

Best Regards,

On June 25, 2018, PSNI officers went to Gill’s yard, where they found a large amount of waste consisting of scrap wood, pallets, carpet and underlay.
