Work on the Uni farm?

I've been looking for Dairy work in Aber for ages, and Uni have just built a massive new rotary milking parlour for a few hundred cows so would be really good to work there.

I emailed the Farms Manager asking about work and work experience etc but haven't had a reply. They've just opened up a Vacancy on the Uni farms looking for Relief Stockmen and Dairy Workers, I says is for experienced people only and looks really good.
I meet the Essential Criteria and most of the Desired (I don't have Tractor driving experience - but willing to learn!). I've worked on the Uni farms for the last 2 years doing Lambing so that should help too

Will apply and see what happens! :)

Uni 3rd Year

Can't believe I'm in the 3rd year of my Animal Science degree already!

We've started lectures, had meetings about my Dissertation (booked a lab induction and have a hand in date for it!) and got practical dates.
They're mainly lab practically and no dissections which I think is the best bit but they're left to first years!

Have been trying to get some more work experience in Aber - Lambing is good but it's only 6/8 weeks of the year so thought Milking might be a good idea. Either one or a couple of mornings milking a week and could do more/less depending in timetables and exams.
