A lot of John Deeres from 6410 to 7930 and the new r series . i have spent a lot of time on a teleporter . I Have spent a harvest on a cat 765c pulling a press and nz . Fendt 936 on Trimble pulling rolls plough and cultivators . I have also done little bit of driving a beet harvester and beet carting . I have done drilling without gps so i have learnt the hard way I can also plough to a fairly good standard and take pride in ploughing . I have also run grain stores and dryers . I have done spraying with out gps and I have always kept the machine well maintained.
I have a little knowledge of stock doing some milking bedding and strawing up for some beef and dairy and some pig work .
Married with 3 children
Fishing shooting .
I left the army at 20 yrs old . I then did what i wanted to do from a young age farming . I went to a local collage for a couple of months doing agriculture but managed to get on an apprenticeship . I stayed on and off the same farm for about 7 years but i was on a 0 hour contract . I have then been on a 4000 acre farm then due to family commitments moved to a 800 acre farm near braintree . I do all the drilling , fertilising, spraying , ploughing and rape drilling . We are a very clean farm and everything is maintained to a high standard and serviced when needed which i do myself. I would like to stay in the region of essex if possible . I have a wife and children and family means an awful lot to me . I am a very good team player and thrive working with others but also can work long on my own . I believe im ready to step upto foreman or even manager in a few years time and thats my aim . Where i am now i organise stocks of oils,wearing parts and also help organise lorrys for grain . I keep my chemstore clean tidy and sort out the recycling myself .
I am also very passionate about the environment and wildlife .i would not like to leave now ideally as i dont want to leave my current farm short handed just before harvest as i do all the osr drilling , ploughing and drilling and main cultivations . Maybe a start date near end of october or november . I hope this is understandable.
