I have experience in Tractor driving, baling, ploughing, fencing, etc. For example i had a contract on a large farm in Wiltshire. I carried out tasks quickly and efficiently such as bale chasing, Hauling bales, Bailing and Cultivating.
I have worked with livestock since I first started out farming at the age of 13 . I'm a sheep shearer and have also done my fair share of lambing contracting including night lambing. For example I confidently Lambed 2700 ewes in mid Wales. I also have a lot of experience with cattle and have previously calved 180 stabilise X and blue x along with lambing 1300 llyn X mules. I have also worked on a large estate in south west scotland as a full time shepherd. were i looked after 1000 scotch mules and also fattening 5000 plus lambs(with great succsess) from the other 3 hill farms part of the same estate. and also done alot of cattle work here working with the suckler herd and also alot with the bull beef side of things. also using the cows and sheep to maintain a good grass rotation. sadly after many problems with other staff me and my partner (at the time) regrettably decided to leave. Since leaving I have been doing contract work back at home in Wales. Inc lambing,fencing.
I am a smoker but I respect and know there is a time and a place, as well as keeping health and safety in mind at all times.
Outside of work i enjoy Hunting and fishing. I really do want to get into to training/breeding sheepdogs
I have worked for contractors at harvest time baling and I have also done a lot of fencing contracting without issues and I am able to work using my own initiative. My passion will always sit firmly with sheep work I lambed 2700 ewes in mid Wales, year before last. and last year I lambed 1300 ewes and calved 180 cows in north Hereford.
