Spent my childhood helping my Gramp on a tenanted farm in Oxfordshire until i was 16 then the Oxford collage that owned it sold it to a property developer due to the tenant going bankrupt, From there we moved to the next village and i started working for a swill farmer collecting from cafes restaurants take away's and Oxford collages, it was all put into huge steam vats heated and fed to the pigs, I then worked as a tractor driver for a local dairy farmer, duties involved included mowing grass for both silage and hay and all the relevant machinery that involves, topping rolling fertiliser spreading clamp building and bale carting and stacking, i then progressed to stockmam on the same farm and was responsible for looking after the calf's and youngstock, duties were feeding fresh or powdered milk colostrum and silage and cake,also when needed the herd manager with vet visits AI and few other duties, At the same time as working on the dairy farm i raised and fattened my own beef and poultry on my stepdads smallholding. I have always enjoyed working outside in all types of weathers. Not afraid of a bit of hard work and can work well as a team member, or with my own initiative.
