Lambing Work Experience
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.
NSA members who have submitted potential lambing placements are listed below. Adverts are listed regionally and in date order; the first adverts received will appear at the top and later ones at the bottom. If you are an NSA member and would like to be added to the list so students can contact you about a lambing placement, simply fill in your details at www.nationalsheep.org.uk/lambing-list. The information you provide will be used to formulate your advert. If you are not an NSA member you can find out more about joining at www.nationalsheep.org.uk/members.
Agricultural and Veterinary students can click on the map below to find a list of regional adverts.
Please note: The NSA Lambing List is intended to assist students looking for work experience placements; please do not use the list if you are looking for full-time/paid employment. All farmers on the list are NSA members but no checks are carried out on individuals and any placement is agreed between the farmer and the student; the NSA is only responsible for registering farmers' basic details and circulating the list to students and educational facilities and does not take any responsibility for any placements that take place. Given that the list is aimed at students in Higher and Further Education, we do not recommend students under the age of 16 use the list.
Guidance notes for NSA members and students looking to use the NSA Lambing List can be downloaded at the bottom of this page. - Please note these have been updated to offer guidance for farmers inviting students onto farm, and students taking lambing placements during the Coronavirus outbreak.
