 Farm Work 

This section of the programme gives volunteers the chance to work with a range of livestock species at local commercial farms, including pigs, sheep and cattle. 

This experience can be invaluable to volunteers wanting to work with animals in the future, with lots of practice handling and treating large farm animals.
