I'm a non-smoker. I've grown up on the farm so I'm not afraid of long days or hard work. I'm able to work both, in a team or individually. Good at keeping busy by doing anything required at the time. I'm capable of fencing having been working with a fencing gang. A fast learner, and am happy to learn whatever I don't know. -Lambed 300 ewes 2013 & 2014 - 4th September 2015- Assisted with embryo transplanting, embryo flushing and laparoscopic artificial insemination into goats in Badminton - 6th September 2015- Assisted with embryo transplant and laparoscopic artificial insemination into goats in Derby -3rd October 2015- Assisted with a herd auction of Australian Boer goats in Badminton -18th October 2015 Assisted with the scanning of the implanted embryo in Derby. -25th October 2015 Assisted with implanting embryos into goats in Scotland. -30thOctober/1st November 2015 went to Derby to do a goat judging course. - Kidded goats the last 3 years - Calved cows for the last 5 years. My heart is with the cattle and would love to continue to work with them, however I would be interested in any work involving livestock and or tractor work. Although I love cattle, I am not keen on milking. Calf rearing is my passion when it comes to dairy work.
