Farming background

I grew up on a farm as a youngster helping my father milk cows, vaccinate sheep and the daily day to day running of the farm. I have since gained knowledge on working with harvest crews in Australia/New Zealand/England & America. It's has been mainly arable work but I have been fortunate enough to experience 2 lambing seasons/calving season in New Zealand regarding livestock. Whilst in England I worked with the brother business of the framer, mucking out pigs when it was too wet to harvest. I've been lucky to operate Case Steiger/Quadtracks up to 620hp aswel as combines with 50ft header front and grain cart that can hold 40+ tonne.

Hobbies

I enjoy having the odd drink with workmates, seeing the sites/attractions in local areas and meeting new people
