Since returning home, it has been great to look back on the experience and all that I have learned during my time in Ireland! The knowledge I gained about grassland management exceeded my expectations and I hope to try a few techniques such as strip grazing on my family's farm in Ontario. Although the experience was a lot of work, it was very rewarding to see the herd complete calving and calves let out to pasture before finishing my placement. I look forward to keeping in touch with my host family as they were more than welcoming the entire time I was in Ireland.

I'm having the time of my life in the Netherlands. It's such a great experience! Thank you for getting me this far.
