I'm a 28yo kiwi lass from Lancashire and looking for lambing anywhere in the U.K. (Accommodation will be needed if out of lancs) I am available from dec through to mid April at this stage. I have lived in the UK for nearly five years and done as many lambings, including outdoors with commercial texel ewes, cheviots, mules, lleyns and dalesbred. Indoors with pedigree texels, beltexes, suffolks and Charolais. Have a clean drivers license, vehicle and my own dog. Happy to work as a team or on my own.

Farming background

I have assisted in several indoor and outdoor lambings since moving to the UK, and helped on my fathers farm lambing and throughout the year whenever I got the chance, as soon as I could walk until the age of 18 when my father retired from farming. I have also spent three summers as a wool wrapper and have laboured throughout the year on various farms. I am able to handle a clipping handpiece fairly well, and while I do not consider myself a sheep shearer I can shear and crutch ewes and lambs should the need arise. I also have worked six seasons in Norway shesring sheep on a slaughter line.
