As part of NSA's support for the next generation of sheep farmers and large animal vets, each year we collate a list of NSA members looking for help at lambing time. These sheep farmers are able to offer work experience placements to veterinary and agricultural students; the list provides their contact details so students can approach them to ask for a placement. The 2013/2014 NSA Lambing List is available here and will be added to as more farmers' details become available. If you would like to be notified each time the lambing list is updated please email your contact details to email@example.com. If you are a NSA member and would like to be added to the list so students can contact you about a lambing placement please email firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are not a NSA member but would like to sign up and be added to the lambing list, please click here for a membership form.
