Farming background

I have lived on my family's farm all my life. We rent about 200 acres in Cornwall. We have about 50 cows and rear about 100 black and white steers. I look after all the passports (moving on and off) for the cattle and all the other paper work which go's with it. I have worked for a local sheep farmer while i was at college part time. I have also worked on several dairy farms were I was milking and carrying out other jobs. The more resant job I have had was working on a arable farm for 3 years part time, which I really enjoyed but unfortunately he retired to a smaller farm. I still work for the same farmer and help him out.

Hobbies

Unfortunately farm life is in my brain. When I'm not working for other people I am at home looking after the farm. I go out weekends occasionally, but I am not a heavy drinker.
