Lambing 2011

After emailing lots of people, being forwarded on and trying for quite a while I've finally managed to sort some Lambing out!! :))
Was surprisingly hard to do considering we're in Wales!
Emailed Uni's Farm Manager and went to see him today with my friend Cody to get it sorted out....

They have a big shed with 400 ewes in then there are another 2 sections of the shed which have cows in one it and the other had a metal runway or something.
Waited around for a bit and managed to speak to the Farm Manager and then the Shepherd.
There will be 4 or 5 of us going and 'cos of lectures we'll be doing the night shift!
8pm - 6am and then on 2 days we start lectures at 9am and finish at 6pm!!!

Will be worth it to go lambing and play with the lambs, can sleep in the afternoon! :P

We got there on the bus today which took about 20 mins but the Arriva buses stop running at 6pm in Aber and won't start till 8am so will have to look at other buses or a taxi. Becky does her her car up here but we won't always be with her!

Need to sort out what experience people have so he can put us together and sort out a rota :)

Hi Lewis
I'am in year 11 and deciding on my as level subjects.
I was just wondering, is it possible to get a degree in animal science and then become a vet? If so, how many years will it take?
Thanks

Hi Sam.
For me, I think if I get a 2:1 or 1st in my Animal Science degree I can apply for Vet School and if I get in, go straight in to 2nd year Vet school :)
So it would be 3 years Animal Science and another 4 in Vet school total of 7 years!
