Farming background

I spent seven days staying on a sheep farm to help with lambing. I learnt how to pull lambs, look after new-born ones, make a ewe adopt a lamb, and the common illnesses that lambs can get. I was also taught about how to recognise signs that a ewe is about to drop and how the farmer chooses which ewes to keep. I worked for a week on an organic dairy farm in Kent which had 240 cows. I helped finish morning milking and scraped out the cow sheds every day. I helped to herd the cows into the milking parlour and assisted with the afternoon milk in a modern hairpin parlour, and also watched the farmer carry out routine feet trimming. Every Saturday I volunteer at a farm stables. I muck out, groom and tack up the horses and lead horses in lessons. I also worked on the farm and fed and mucked out the many animals that they had including sheep, goats, alpacas, chickens, pigs, ducks and turkeys. I milked their goats and collected and identified the birds' eggs, as well as disinfecting the farm paths every morning and helping visitors with their questions. I spent 6 weeks with a ranching family in Nebraska, learning how they manage cows over there. I drove the cows over 10 miles of pasture, pulled calves, tagged and checked on four-wheelers and horses, and participated in a branding.
