Farming background

I started a YTS program after leaving school.  I worked on my parents dairy/beef unit 1986-1995.  After my parents retired I began working on a dairy/beef/arable unit (800 acres).  I was responsible for milking 130 cows through an 8;16, I operated the feed waggon and loader, moved fences, counted all grazing animals, reported any incidents. I was involved in every stock related duty, assisting with foot trimming, administering calcium/drugs, also calvings.  I was involved in all harvest, grass, hay, grain, straw transport. I did some power harrowing but I do not pretend to be a first class arable operator.

Hobbies

I started line dancing as a social activity
