Looking for Dairy cow mentoring

I am looking to get into cattle and goats in about 5 years. (I know / long term goal). But, I have never raised cattle or goats. Is there anyone with beef and/or dairy cattle and/or goats that would teach me? I am thinking like a volunteer basis. I want to actually work and learn. I’m not asking to be paid in money - just in knowledge.

My background is 24 years in small animal veterinary medicine. I am a licensed (in VA) veterinary technician so I have been trained in the basics of farm animals back in school (graduated 2003). I have experience with horses but nothing else.
