Farming background

I have spent the last three years obtaining as much experience with livestock (particularly sheep) as possible around the constraints of alternative full time employment. I have worked on a dairy (helped with milking twice daily, responsible for feeding the calves and youngstock), a pig farm (responsible for feeding, processing new litters of piglets, and assisting with AI and stock selection for market), and I continue to assist on a lowland sheep farm (lambing assistant, and casual labour throughout the year eg weighing lambs, vaccinating, worming etc).

Hobbies

Shooting, riding, dancing, sailing.
