Other Information
Marital status

I have a boyfriend who's 19 who also works in agriculture as a land based technician for a local company that specialises in agco. His parents have a small 100 acre beef farm that has 70 acres of arable that gets contracted. They have a small beef herd 0f 35 changing from the old Holstein dairy they had to full Angus and Hereford. I play a big part in their farm and have responsibilities. I know the cows well which I think is important as they gain your trust making it easy to work with them. I have a very close family. I currently live with my dad ( mum passed away when i was little.) I can always rely on my family if I get in a muddle. Whether it be a lift to work or somewhereto stay.My mums brother also has a small beef farm, this is where i got the passion from to go into Agriculture as none of my other family have anything to do with it (dad owns a post ofice and sister is a teacher) Although I don't see my uncle, I still speak to him and he gives me guidance through agric.

Hobbies

When i'm not Relief milking (usually 4/5 days a week but varies due to the other milkers), I'm either on my boyfriends farm, seeing my friends/ family or pursuing my hobbie. Forover 10 years I have been into the equine community and have a very close bond with the yard owner (acts as my mother as known before birth). Although I don't own my own horse, it definitely feels as if I do. I enjoy this as I don't like being stuck inside. I also go to Young Farmers club, as much as i can but due to finishing milking around 7pm i'm usually too late to go.
