Good Experience in slurry tanking, general tractor driving, yard scraping, skid steer bedding up with ag dispenser, maize and silage hauling, silage pit work e.g pushing grass and rolling a pit. Tedding grass raking grass, had little experience with a grass drill, straw bale hauling and stacking, dung spreading, power harrowing. Rolling. fertiliser spinning on uneven ground. With these skills Id like to expand and learn uses on more equipment as with my current job Ive not been able to sadly hence the change in job.
Started milking in a 30/30 herringbone parlour milking around the 400 mark at 16, then the farm progressed on to lely robots and have been working with them ever since. Ive been involved in drying off cows ready for calving, dehorning calves and any general vaccines, injections and spray on worms etc. Id consider myself very confident around cattle not scared to get in and get my hands dirty.
Mum, Dad and Sister
Outside of work Im more or less messing about with cars as I currently have an on going project car i have built for race track purposes. And on top of that also my friendship group are very much so car oriented aswell.
My grandad was a farmer/ farm manager. My Dad and Uncle both worked on farms, my Dad still helps out on a local farm that i also help out on, this is how i got into farming. Ever since i have left school I have been working on a dairy beef and sheep farm doing general farm work, from bedding up and scraping the cow sheds to general tractor work such as fertiliser spinning, slurry and dung spreading, grass maize or straw carting etc. Id like to get more experience in the machinery side of things wether its operating them or general maintenance on the machine. Being into my cars outside of work has gained me that bit of knowledge of general regular maintenance on most vehicles big or small.
