Good track record of artificial insemination (genus trained) A good eye for fattening cattle and pigs Able to maintain and fine tune a total mixed ration for cows. I understand the need for efficiency, especially in today's difficult market. Always conscious not to waste time or money.
I have achieved many placed positions in stock judging and machinery operations through young farmers and county shows. I have my own welding equipment and a comprehensive collection of tools. I currently earn approximately £35,000 with an on farm cottage, I would however consider slightly less for the right job and/or regular time off. Full cv and more references are available at request.

I enjoy fixing and making things, off road driving, skiing and sport shooting.
