At the moment I am looking for a placement from August 2011-2012 as this is a requirement of my NDA. Due to my lack of expeience I am finding it quite difficult.

As pigs are my main interest I would love to find a pig farm that would consider taking me.

I hope somebody could be of help.

    Where are you based and I would presume that you placement is for a year????
    My first suggetion is try advertising what you want on under smallads.
    If this does not work then get back to me.
    Also Rhodie(based near Reading?), who comes on this site, is in need of some staff so try him!!!!!
    Hope it helps and Good Luck!!!!!:D

    Thank you Rhodie for being so responsive. Much appreciated, as I know you don't have much time on your hands. From what you have said about your farm in the past, it would be a good place to gain pig experiece.
    Keep us posted.:D
