My previous stock experience begins when I first started working on a farm where I was able to work with 300 cattle that were reared from calf's up to thirteen months old to be sold as Rose Veal. I spent every day feeding, sorting, injecting, medicating, clipping and taking them to market. As well as working alongside 200 sheep, a herd of 50 suckler cows as well regularly helping with calling. I was also given the opportunity to work with 12 horses on an occasional basis. After this I begin boarding college where I worked with 400 dairy cows milking them when on duty, doing yard duties which including cubicle bedding and scraping out, I also worked with the veal unit that had 80 veal valves that I attended to on a regular basis, I worked with 1500 sheep and learnt so much about them like how to sheer them, administer general vaccinations and take part in lambing. I was also given the opportunity to work at the deer park on rare occasions. After beginning work at agriculture I worked with 1200 store cattle on a daily basis this meant feeding, clipping them, medicating when needed plus loads more. Plus I worked on a 40000 bird turkey farm for 9months. I now have 18 months experience on two 1000 cow dairy units one as the herd manager.
I am recently married to my wife who is now pregnant and have 2 dogs
Outside of work I enjoy being in the outdoors doing skating,paddle boarding, mountain biking, long boarding, surfing, climbing, walking, high ropes courses and loads more with my partner and my dogs
I have worked on farms since the age of 12 I first started in a family friends farm doing work experience and this was soon extended to a full time position where I spent school holidays and weekends for two years. After this I spent 3 years at hartpury college doing agriculture, whilst there I gained so much more experience including work experience on new farms and them achieving a full time job at a large farm and contractors after finishing my three years where I stayed for a further two years. Making it three years including my work experience year of employment at agriculture.
