CV Headline

I'm Irish, attending an agricultural college in Co. Galway. Need to find a farm willing to take me for 16 weeks. My father and I run a 900 ewe farm since I was a child. We lamb the majority of the ewes outdoors, I would have great experience with lambing. Have several working collie dogs here at home so I work well with them if needed. Can dose, gather or catch sheep, do their hooves etc, (can't sheer!). Would want to go to a farm with at least 5 days work available, would love the 7 though. A good laugh would be a bonus also.
