Farming background

From 2009-2013 I took on the role as stockman/calf-rearer at the farm I grew up on where I reared the replacements and beef bulls, I also helped with tractor driving during busy periods. In January 2013, I became the relief dairyman for four high input Holstein units to gain a wider knowledge in farming at the same farm Whilst at my childhood farm I took on most roles of stockmanship, helping my father with his sheep, night lambing, calving, out wintering etc. In October 2014, I joined a grass based New Zealand style dairy farm which has a big interest in environmental preservation of the land and soil also the conservation of ground nesting birds, which has become a big part of my involvement on the farm. I have successfully reared the calves and heifers achieving high daily growth rates from milk and grass.

Hobbies

Manage own sheep and cows, help my wife with her horses, days out with the family
