I have worked part-time as a farm worker at Childhay Manor and Forde Grange goat farm. I assisted with many jobs and I could take responsibility of jobs that I see needed doing. This job helps with my general skills, and has enabled me to experience life at work. I have also helped set up the Melplash show as my boss was vice chairman and chairman. I have spent the whole of the summer 2015 working on Kingston Maurward College Farm. This gave me great experience on a farm which is a mixed variety of arable, dairy, sheep, pigs and a small beef unit. I was able to help in all of these sectors, which enabled me to gain even more experience and knowledge. I have worked at Hellings Farm which is a 350 cow dairy unit. I was mainly in charge of milking and calf rearing. During my time there I had many dealings with milk recorders and observing with AI. I also had to conduct estate works around the farm. During my time at ABP Langport I was the manager of their lairage. I had to deal with all the paperwork and the general running of the lairage. I worked for ABP for 6 months until my probationary period was up and they no longer needed me. During my evenings and weekends I have worked for The Squirrel Inn as bar staff. They will often call me if they have functions on or are stuck for staff. My recent employment was for Pattemores Dairy Ingredients where I am a laboratory technician. This means I am responsible for testing all milk which is incoming and outgoing from the site. I have completed two years at Kingston Maurward agricultural college. During this time, I completed a level 3 and level 3 extended diploma in agriculture and came away please a distinction. I have worked with a variety of animals ranging from cattle to goats. I am a very committed person, I can manage to balance my social life with my work life while not letting my work attitude slip. I work hard and do not give up until the job is done to the correct standards. I am a good team player, and I am always looking for new ways to further my knowledge. I am currently a laboratory technician at Pattemores Dairy Ingredients. At college I won the Grace Selby Memorial trophy - this was for the student who contributed the most the Level 3 Agriculture.
