I live on a farm at home and we stock ewes and lambs and cows and calves. we keep Suffolks and Texels ewes alongside crossbreeds of the two. I went to New Zealand and went for 9 months contracting using all types of machinery from, bailing to silage wagon, ploughing and discing etc, Ive also been in Northumberland lambing 3000 ewes and calving 500 cows.

I love to work and i am motivated to do well for myself and my family. Ive also worked with massey ferguson dealers and been in the stores and have done a bit of mechanicing. Also I thing Ive got is a trailer licence as its needed now to take stock around and to cart crop. Im also a qualified welder also as I thought it could get me experience in the maintenance part of farming. All round Ive been driving myself to start work on a farm in which one day I hope to achieve that. I feel that anyone Ive worked for. Ive always give 100% and just get on with anything that is giving to me.
