During my time at school and sixth form, I was part of the school’s Young Farmers Club. This resulted in me being a member for 7 years and on the committee for two years in a row, standing as the Vice Chairman. During my time here I learnt various skills and expanded my knowledge when it came to the animal husbandry side of the farm. Every day, morning and evening, I looked after the animals, by bedding them down for the night, feeding, checking waters etc etc. I also learnt skills such as lambing and during my final two years actually lambed my first few lambs. As a club we took part at county shows, meaning our animals had to be halter trained throughout the year to ensure they were ready for the shows. This meant I was reglarly handling the animals, especially the cattle, to prepare them in time for the shows. Within my time at Young Farmers I won many awards. These included many prizes within our club, as a result of my hard work and dedication to the Young Farmers and animals, as well as winning many prizes at shows with my cattle, such as numerous Champions and Reserve Champions, many First and Second Prizes and other places at the Kent Count Show and at many smaller shows competing throughout the 7 years. After my time at the school farm I decided to gain some knowledge within the dairy industry and arranged some work experience over the space of a few weekends at a dairy farm. This allowed me to learn and expand my knowledge within the dairy industry, as I did not have this opportunity whilst at the school farm. During my time here, I learnt how to milk within the parlour and also carried out some shifts within the yard, looking after the calves and cattle being milked.

Head Groom at John Parker International Horse Transport- During this employment, my daily duties involved caring of up to 24-48 horses a day, across two different yards and ensuring their welfare needs were met. This included mucking out to a high standard; not only for our own horses, but for other client’s horses (such as international riders), ensuring certain horses were fed to their dietary requirements. I also had to maintain the hygiene and cleanliness of the yards and around the muck heap, certifying that the yard was swept and all equipment was stored correctly and appropriately. I was the only groom employed to complete this role, and would have to perform effectively and efficiently in order to complete all of the required tasks each day.
