Ive lived on a family cattle farm for 25 years and loved every minute of it . Ive committed to all our yard work, calf rearing and lambing. Ive worked for various farmers and contractors over the years gaining experience in all sectors and I try to help out where i can with farms that don't have the extra hands. As an agricultural contractor with a passion in farming i try to gain as much experience I can so I'm able to use them skills for when I take over the family farm. I'm believe I'm a confident Operator and take on all tasks that are thrown at me. I've worked for various contractors and farmers and decided to go self employed using the skills and knowledge that I've gained throughout my time as a herdsman and harvest student.
