I am from a farming family where we had 1000 mules and 400 angus x suckler cows on salisbury plain,and started working with livestock from early age. I have 25 yrs experience in all aspects of a working livestock & arable farm. I have been working self employed for many years shepherding large numbers of sheep & carrying out stockman duties on large suckler herds for farmers & livestock suppliers based across the South West. Was head shepherd for 9 years for 1400 blackface, bealuhs where I did all the day to day shepherding, during this time I was involved with large numbers of tack sheep and all aspects of contract work with sheep. I have also worked for a local contractor, driving tractors, dealing with silage, maize, foraging & muck spreading. I am currently head shepherd on a large estate in Lincolnshire. Managing 1000 breeding ewes and upto 4000 store lambs and tack sheep on vegetable/root crops. I have my own rappa trailer and miles of electric fencing. I am a hardworking, self motivated individual. I have a good eye for detail & am committed to all that I undertake, seeing each task through to the end. I am punctual & practical with good problem solving skills & able to work well under pressure & to deadlines. I am able to work as part of a team or on my own initiative.
