Chainsaw ticket. After leaving school, my farming experienced started on a dairy farm in Dunchurch; this farm is 200 acres and I milked 180 Friesian cows and carried out all other jobs associated with a milking herd. The farm has since changed to beef and arable; with 20 beef cattle and 70 acres of arable. When the milking cows were sold 9 years ago, I started working on a large mixed farm, consisting of 1500 acres, which is made up 800 acres of arable, 1000 sheep and 300 sucklers' and followers.
