Farming background

I have 4 years experience milking cows, with the herd being 300+. I set up and ran the dairy throughout the milking. I assisted with vet visits, detecting lameness and mastitis management and treatment, as well as calving all year round. My other duties included calf rearing, management of the colostrum, vaccinating the calves, de-horning, tagging and worming the livestock. I have my foot trimming certificate booked for November 2017, and will follow shortly after that to obtain my AI certificate. I worked with the beef stock on the farm in terms of medicine treatment and general care, bedding up and feeding. I have lambing experience, delivering over 100 lambs. I am very enthusiastic and have a passion for working in the dairy industry, I am patient and competent, and very willing to learn new skills.

Hobbies

I have my own hens and 3 pygmy goats, so spend a lot of time looking after them. I spend a lot of time at my local pig shelter taking care of the pigs.
