Cultivation work. Ploughing, power harrowing discing and rolling. I have also done hay making using a Bomford mower an old cock pheasant, a Lely haybob, harvest work using an old New Holland combine, grain carting using John Deere 6920 and a A S Marston 16 ton trailer, loaded bales on to trailers using a John Deere 6510 with a John Deere loader. I have also used a JCB telehandler for mucking out the cow sheds. the ploughing I have done was with a Lemkin 4 furrow reversable plough, the power harrowing was with a SKH 3m power harrow and the drilling was with a combination drill 4m. I have also done slurry spreading with a Star 1100 tanker then a Malgar 1500 tanker and then a Malgar 2000. the biggest tractor I have used was a Challenger on tracks with a 6m discing machine
My stock work started when i was 7 yrs old looking after pigs. I started off mucking them out with a scraper and a shovel. I then started going round helping feeding them and checking to see if they were all eating and looking out for any signs of poorly ones. this is where my vet skills started as I looked on how much and how the drugs were administered. Later on I asked if I could have a go at making the pigs better. first I gave a pig syfack in a bucket of water to stop it scouring and just progressed from there. I then looked after beef cattle starting off by feeding them cake pellets in a trough and as time went on progressed to the veterinary side of it.
I then progressed to milking cows and the veterinary side of that industry.
Able to work long hours to get the job done. Used to working long hours alone and overnight. Very experienced in ploughing and cultivation work.
Married, hopefully I can find employment near home, but I'm willing to travel/work away from home for the right job.
I don't get much free time but when I do i enjoy going to agricultural shows and other days out.
I grew up on a farm and have spent most of my life farming, I'm currently employed in another industry but would love to get back to my farming roots.
