Use a counterbalance forklift as part of my current job- loading and unloading lorries with barrel pallets/IBCs (upto 1 tonne), putting orders up for despatch.
Little bit of basic tractor driving from college days, nothing recently.
6yrs lambing experience with texel, texel Cross, mules and lleyns.

Small experience with drenching, dagging, fleece rolling.
Come from a non-farming background with a renewed passion for a farming career. Went away to college in Devon at the age of 16 to study countryside management and came away with a new career goal of working with livestock especially Sheep. If I can tie the two together that would be the best outcome.
Since my college days I have helped on a couple of farms at lambing time around my full time employment as an Office assistant and thoroughly enjoyed the hours, hard graft and bringing new life into the world and doing my upmost to assist the ewes and lambs anyway i can. I believe now is the right time for me to pursue a farming career and I'm ready to dive head first into the new challenge.
