I am a keen deerstalker, qualified to DSC2 with BDS Advanced Deer Management certificate and various contracted posts for forestry companies.
I have always been passionate about farming. Not being fortunate enough to come from a farming family myself, I have had to seek out opportunities where and when they have arisen. Initially when I was young I spent 2 years volunteering part time on a local sheep/dairy farm learning about lambing, milking, etc. The experience got me hooked on working with livestock. Since then I have gone on to hold down many different and varied posts which have all enabled me to hone my industry skills. I believe that my work experience has already been outlined in the above section and in my c.v. which is attached to this form. However should you require more information about my abilities/experience please just ask.
