Winter 2017
End of the year

We have recently welcomed our last group of students for 2017. These French student are here until the end of November, so there is still time for them to improve their English skills and get some hands-on work experience. There are three groups of students from Danish schools finishing their placements during early November and they have had a great time with their Irish families.

Soon, we will start to receive applications for spring placements, which is a great time to come to a farm. During spring (February until April) students get involved with calving, lambing and even foaling. New born animals are arriving at farms every day and it is a great opportunity for a student to be involved in the process, learn about the care of new born animals, pregnant animals, changing feeding programmes, the change in grassland management, and lots of veterinary aspects.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Some individuals thrive on a big commercial Irish farm whilst others benefit from a small family-run mixed farm.
