Ex-Extended level 3 Diploma Agricultural student from Writtle College. I live in Leigh on Sea. I have a years experience of lambing with a flock of roughly 200 ewes. Due to Covid I didn't get to do my second year of lambing, so I'm looking for some more experience.

I've done a LANTRA Telehandler course, but haven't got the ticket. I've done a couple of hours with a variety of ploughs. I've got my Pa1 and Pa2.
I've had minimal work with cattle, only bedding up and weighing.
Pig-wise, I've weaned, injected and mucked out.
For sheep and goats, I've done injections, pre-lambing checks, foot trimming, culling, Ram MOT's and lambing (supervised)
I still occasionally volunteer, I read and I'm in the middle of building myself a computer.

Jan 2019- Sept 2020: I volunteered at a Rare breeds Farm on Fridays and occasionally on other days if the farm was short-staffed, performing whatever array of duties the supervisor deemed necessary, including interaction with members of the public, transporting hay and straw, occasionally morning and evening feeding (sheep, goats, alpacas, pigs, chickens). I assisted with shearing last year, as well as health checks and powdering of all the animals. Along with all the usual menial tasks of mucking out, collecting eggs, moving fencing etc. I also assisted with refencing the various animal pens, removing the old fencing, extracting the old posts and laying new ones.
Sept 2018 - March 2020: I was at Wuc doing an Extended level 3 diploma in agriculture, this course mainly revolved around Sheep, workshop skills and arable.

Anywhere within a reasonable distance of London is fine, I'm working on getting my own transport, but as I'm currently in a tier 4 area, all driving teests have been cancelled.
