Farming background

Worked on a 1500 acre mixed arable and beef farm where I was involved in all aspects of arable work including cultivating, carting, repair and maintenance of equipment. I was also involved with feeding the cattle, checking cattle, moving them from field to field and regular worming and vaccination. I then worked for a straw contractor in Essex stacking and carting bales, this involved driving a fastrac and artic trailer across Essex, liaising with different farmers as to straw stack locations, I was also driving a 9m telehandler stacking the bales and loading lorries, some for the UK and some for Europe, the European lorries had to have a CMR export document filled out as well as being stacked in curtain side lorries. I am current,y working for the family farm which is beef sheep and machinery sales, I am involved in all aspects of this including dealing with customers, sending invoices, preparing and repairing machines for sale, delivering the machines. When I am not dealing with the machinery I am caring for the stock including bedding, feeding, vaccinating, lambing, calving, weaning, sorting, and all associated animal husbandry. I also keep the buildings and feeders repaired and maintained. We do our own mucking out, muck spreading and grassland work including fence repairs, hedge cutting, rolling topping and harrowing.

Hobbies

I'm the clerk of works chairman for the Surrey young farmers county show, I enjoy walking my dog, off road driving and shooting.
