Other equipment experience

I have worked on small dairy farms to large arable farms(4000 ha) carrying out a range of duties primarily trailer work for silage, corn and potatoes but also self propelled sprayer ( Househam ), mowing with trailed mower, tedding and rowing up, ploughing and power harrow, muck spreading. Having left farming in 2000 I now would like to get back into the industry.

Having worked as a self employed builder for the last 25 years or so I think that the mentality to be self employed and driven to keep going out to get work would be very useful in farming, I have excellent time keeping (builders not known for that I realise ) I'm driven to get things done, can work alone or as a team and have good organisational skills.

I realise my knowledge is old now but I can drive most things with some teaching and have been driving diggers, dumpers and telehandlers whilst building.

I have been working for a local contractor since spring when needed driving John Deere and New Holland tractors using Starfire 6000 GPS for power harrowing, I have also been muck spreading and driving for silage using Stewart 18 ton trailers.

Other Information

Just returned to farming after 20 plus years in construction. Prior to construction I worked on various farms from dairy to large arable(8000 acres) carting corn and potatoes and self propelled spraying. I've been self employed for 24 years, I'm hardworking , punctual and aim to do the best possible job I can in everything I do. Working in construction means accuracy, cleanliness (mainly for site safety) and planning are vital to make a job run smoothly and profitable
