350 mainly Mule and Texel/Mule ewes lambing indoors. Lambs are tagged soon after birth and lambing information recorded using a handheld reader and TGM software. Ewes and lambs are put out to grass as soon as possible after lambing, ideally next day. I am looking for 1-2 enthusiastic students to assist with a variety of jobs including feeding/watering freshly lambed ewes, lambing ewes, looking after young lambs etc. Accommodation and meals available in the farm house if necessary. If you have any questions about any aspect of the placement feel free to call any time. Thanks for looking!

The farm is a 500-acre organic farm, keeping 400 pure-bred Lleyn ewes. The ewes are housed at night and kept outdoors during the day. The flock is prolific and there is a strong emphasis on lamb survival. The student will be involved in all the shepherding tasks. 100 beef cows will also be calving at the same time, so there is also the opportunity for some calving experience. There are three people working on the farm and adequate training and support will be given to the student at any level. Previous students have reported excellent experiences. Accommodation available for male occupancy only.

A family farm where everyone has day time jobs as well as farming therefore we require a student to assist with lambing during the day. A member of the family will be off each day for the first two weeks to train and support. 80% of ewes will lamb during this time. For the next 3 weeks you will be on your own 9am - 1pm however one of the family works 5 mins away and can help if required. Great opportunity to get involved and learn on a family farm. The role will consist of lambing the 150 commercial ewes and 50 pure breed Texel and Suffolk ewes. All lambs are tagged and recorded at birth using a psion reader and TGM software, lambs are turned out with ewes after 1 to 2 days therefore feeding and lamb care will be a major role. The majority of the work will be during the day with very occasional night work unless you want to experience night lambing. Accommodation and meals will be provided if required. This is also a paid role. We don't require a student with previous experience but a can-do attitude and willing to learn. Please contact Matthew on 00447592598095 who will be happy to discuss more details and answer any questions. Thanks for taking the time to read this.
