Have experience with all aspects of cattle. Also experience with TMR feeders as I used to feed 280 high yielding Holsteins twice a day seven days a week. When I was working there it was my job in looking after heifers from 2 months through to calving. Also experience with tractor work, slurry tanking mainly and also helped out when silaging. I also have plenty of telehander experience as I did the TMR feed mix twice a day. I then moved to Stafford To be a herdsman on a robotic herd, tackling all duties inlcuding vet visits, foot trimming, Ai, drying off and calving, TMR feeding, scraping out, heifer rearing and some tractor work. I then moved back to Yorkshire to work closer to home on a pedigree Jersey farm, where I undertake all aspects of the day to day running of the herd, including feeding with Keenan feeder wagon, irrigation, slurry tanking, mucking our, carting corn and silage. I now work work as a herdsman on a dairy farm just on the outskirts of Penrith, Cumbria! I am trusted in the day to day running of the herd talking with our main tractor driver about our TMR ration with our nutrionist, undertake biweekly vet routine visits, cattle AI, foot trimming and calving! I have just left working in Aberdeen on a dairy farm as herdsman milking 200 cows but on robots. Any questions please do get in touch.
