Farming background

Currently in oxford, I was in Ongar, Essex, doing cultivation for a farmer, driving a new 8737 dyna vt massey ferguson fitted with topcon gps systems. I do have spraying experience in south Africa but sadly don't have the necessary certificates for the UK, have about 15hours experience on a combine but would rather be taught how to operate it from scratch. I have been doing 110+ hours a week weather depending so im not one to complain about working late hours to get work done before the rains.

Hobbies

horse ride, gym, shoot, rugby and cricket if theres time
