I have type 1 diabetes which is controlled by insulin and blood monitoring. I maintain this very well therefore it does not effect my day to day life.
I began as a herdsman on a small diary farm in my local village, where I carried out a lot of tractor work alongside milking. I then left here to join a larger dairy farm in oxford, I began as a herdsman and then got promoted to assistant manager, my move greatly improved my skills and knowledge, however I miss the tractor work as we use contractors.
