Could you benefit from a student placement on your farm?

29th Apr 2019 / By Alistair Driver

The NPA receives a lot of inquiries from veterinary students courses seeking placements on pig farms.

We believe taking on these placements can have benefits all-round. The farm gains a capable pair of hands and someone who should arrive with a willingness to learn and plenty of information to impart. Even though, they are studying veterinary medicines, the placements cover general work on pig farms.

As a result, the student gains valuable experience in the realities of pig farming, which, as well as helping them with their studies, can help to ensure we can attract the best veterinary talent to secure the future of the industry.

If you would like to benefit from the opportunity, we can help put you in touch with students who could be suitable for your business, location etc.
