Farming background

I currently work on a farm as an assistant herdsman which i only joined in December after being made redundant but i have just been informed that they are selling the cows. Prior to this i worked on an organic farm which I have done since March 2016 and really enjoy however the owner has decided to sell the cows. I was an assistant herdsman then took over as herdsman whilst the cows were being sold. Farming is my passion and want to continue in this industry which was hard enough to get into. I have lambed for the 2 years with 2 different farmers. This year we lambed 2000 and last year about 1000. I have lambed, treated them, penned them up, mucked out, bottle fed, tube fed, cake feeding, hay feeding, strawed out barns, used a hot box, adopted, fostered, turned out, ringed them.
