Had to go up to the Uni farm earlier for a meeting with the head Shepherd.
They've lost 3 full-time staff (and got a new Farm Manager) since last year who covered lambing on the nights we couldn't do, did days and were there for us to call if there were any problems...
SO, because of that they want the 4 of us to cover all the Uni lambing, full-time nights for 6 weeks.
The 6 weeks start mid-March so goes over the Easter holidays.
Becky + Sian are going home for Easter and won't/can't come back up so its down to me + Cody.
Obviously we could say no and Uni will have to find some more staff to cover it but as much as I want to go home, I'd like to stay lambing too. The pay isn't a lot but does help but mainly do it for the experience, they may ask us to do more work in the future too.
We all need to sort out dates to decide if we can or can't do it, and come up with a rota of we can...
(Off to Reading for the weekend at a chicken show now!)
