Hi Mrplattypus,
Tell us a bit more about yourself and where you are located.

Hi bionic,
Well i live in the West Midlands, Staffordshire. I am currently studying animal management at Rodbaston college. I have been working on a meat and dairy farm for 2 years, a childrens farm for 6 months and a dog day care place for 4 months.I am very interested in keeping livestock, when i am older and have my own place, and i want to get all the knowledge i can.  :farmer:
Thanks for asking

Hi from the North of Scotland. how about asking around your area if anyone would give you some lambing experience. I know the farmers around me would jump at the chance.
