Farming background

I left school in 2004 to come home to work and help run the family farm business. In that time I've covered allot of tractor work, combine and livestock work. We gave up cereals last year due to the fact that we couldn't afford buying another combine and one pass unit. We grew 200 acres of spring barley and 100 acres of oats, we didn't see it viable spending money that couldn't be justified. I've got experience of ploughing sowing and combining.  Our plough is a 4 furrow Kverneland with no.28 boards and vari-width.  Our one pass was a 3m Amazone, grain only and our combine was a Claas Dominator 98 15ft cut.  I applied the granular fertiliser after the cereals were sown using a Amazone 24m spreader.  I don't have spraying certificates but I used a Hardi Commander 24m sprayer. I'm self-employed and I'd like to get more experience at arable work on a larger scale.  I'm very keen and enthusiastic about livestock, we carry 20 Simmental cross and 100 Beltex cross ewes.  With our cattle I clip, dose and trim feet and tag. Our sheep I dose, pair feet, dip and also tag.  We get a contractor to clip the sheep however.  My father and I used to work for James Haggart and sons (seed potato growers) Muthill, who are no longer functioning. For them I operated the following, 1. Operating a Grimme 3 bed, 6 row potato planter 2. Stone separating, using a Reekie Netagco separator 3. Bedtilling, using various tillers and ploughs 4. Grubbing, using a 13 leg KV grubber 5. Irrigating potatoes, using a Wright Rain Irrigamatic 6.Operated a Grimme GT 170s harvester. I'm self-employed and I'd like to get more experience at arable farming on a larger scale. Recently, my father invested in a Trimble gps system, auto guidance and steer which now I am competent with. I am used to operating tractors ranging from 150 - 280hp
