I am currently working for my local Auction Mart, along with self employed farm work on the Island when the sales are quiet. I am able to lamb and calve, i can work on my own or within a team.
I am hardworking and reliable and am willing to learn new skills as well as enhance the skills I already have. I have a good sense of humour and am not afraid to get my hands dirty!
I am married and have 2 children.
I like to go fly fishing and watch sheep dog trialling whenever possible. I also like to go around auction marts watching the stock being sold and enjoy collecting livestock photos.
No health issues.
I grew up on a farm in Shropshire, from then I joined the Army, I have driven livestock wagons and carted hay & straw. I was also the foreman at an Auction Mart,
Since June 2012 I have been self employed doing various jobs such as tractor driving, felling timber, and contract lambing around the country. I also worked a 3 week contract working on an organic estate in Lincolnshire calving and lambing and prior to that I worked for a farm in Derbyshire lambing nights for 4 weeks. Also worked as a stockman on a family run farm in Argyll lambing/calving and all the day to day tasks of working on a farm.
