I have a vast knowledge of cultivations and its required equipment from single pass and primary too Secondary cultivations creating a suitable seedbed for sugar beet. Drilling wise I have undertaken planting of most commonly farmed cereals using everything from a direct drill/ cultivator mounted to a Vaderstad and power harrow combination. In the past couple of years Ive been gaining more experience with fertiliser spreading using mainly Amazone, spreading PK to blended mixes and nitram. My combining knowledge is probably my most limited with only driving one a handful of times and jumping at the opportunity to do so.
The makes of machinery Im most familiar with are John Deere,Jcb, Fendt, Massey Ferguson, Case IH/New Holland.
I have many hours doing general tasks such as loading lorries with both a telehandler and loading shovel, hedge cutting, grass topping, trailer work to name a few!
Have undertaken some stock work, such as moving of animals and basic handling.
Shooting with friends and family
6 4 average build.
Have worked for many farms from 2015 to present, in various roles from harvest positions to head tractor driver roles, have undertaken most cultivation tasks, cereal drilling using a variety of techniques, fertiliser spreading and general tractor driving and farm tasks.
Was brought up into farming by my grandparents so know many of the old fashioned ways of the countryside (agricultural and gamekeeping), of which I always started from the bottom before getting a good job!
Im good at setting up machinery on my own and reasonably capable of fixing things should they go wrong, Im also keen to pass on my knowledge and always eager to learn new things.
Im now currently expanding my skill set by gaining my PA1 qualification and will be going on to acquire my PA2 as soon as possible.
