Farming background

Since working through 6 harvest seasons.  Due to my work in the seed industry allowing me to do so as this was our slack period, 2 of those years have become full time farm working.  I started out OSR & corn carting mainly, dieseling and greasing the combine, usual daily maintenance.  I was also responsible for mowing the margins and the dykes. Since then i have gained experience in cultivating, drilling using a 6 metre kvernland tine drill and rolling using a 12 metre dalbo set. This is also in conjunction with the use of a Horstine 12 metre slug pellet and avadex applicator. I also use a twin disc spreader on the back of a kubota atv for slug pelleting.  I have experience in top dressing using an Amazone spreader with John Deere green star gps, as is used on the majority of our machinery. I am also competent with spraying , all my experience is with a Househam Merlin M4 24 metre self propelled.  I am also registered with NROSO.I have experience in using various loaders/fork trucks , JCB tm300& 530/70 ,loading grain lorries & unloading fertiliser etc .  We have a full functional workshop so most repairs and maintenance are done in house.  I can weld and am quite useful with a spanner.  I have been responsible for the upkeep of our combine for the past 2 years which includes daily maintenance and any breakdowns and servicing.  I am looking for work due to my employer taking ill last November and being unable to make a recovery enough to carry on farming.  I am a hard working, motivated, loyal man who loves farming.  Previous to this role I was working within the Seed Industry for 6 years, mainly peas and beans for a small independent seed merchant selling into farms and the international market. I am keen to learn and thrive on new challenges.
