Other Information

I have been entrusted with the running of an entire farm of 120 cows (70 calves) whilst the farmer went for a 1 month holiday to Australia.

This speaks volumes about my abilities and competence, as well as my intelligence and work ethos. Please note the references given are Swedish farmers who only speak a little English. I intend to acquire more farming certifications during my work in the UK.
