Female, hard-working, enthusiastic about stock work looking for full-time employment. Work in Scotland, Scottish Borders, Northumberland, Cumbria
Mainly Livestock, Other
No certified qualification as I come from a different trade of work originally. Plenty of practical work experience mainly on sheep, know how of all seasons of sheep work. I own my own 40 head flock of sheep and feel absolutely comfortable working on my own, but also in a team. I have big flock experience working with my friend, a head shepherd in Northumberland, who's also happy to be a reference for myself. I do own my own trained working sheepdog(s) as well.
Beef, Sheep, Lambing
Full international drivers license. Easy learner. ATV experience, everything else I'm happy enough to put my head down and learn.
Started getting interested in stock work through my Working Sheepdogs herding training. Ever since I regularly, several times a year visit friends in the UK to work with them on their farms. Mainly sheep work so far, but I'm wanting and am passionate about also doing Beef Cattle. I have done everything from hoof care, dosing, vaccinating, some lambing, etc.
English and German
Sheep dog training :) ..running, hiking, anything nature bound
I do not have an actual farming background as the norm does. I actually started getting interested in stock work through my Working Sheepdogs herding training. Ever since I always travelled back and forth at the time from Germany to UK to help out a friend who is the head shepherd of a Farm in Northumberland and was at a time head shepherd of Kirkley Hall College who thaught me properly the ins and out about sheep work and is happy to reference for me. I currently own my own little flock of 40 head sheep here in Northern Ireland and feel perfectly comfortable doing the all season work falling into place around sheep work. Although I have only mainly done sheep work so far, I'm wanting to expand my knowledge and am passionate about working with cattle as well. I have done everything from hoof care, dosing, vaccinating, lambing, etc., and eager to learn more and deepen my knowledge if someone was willing to show me what I don't know yet. I'm absolutely passionate about wanting to work permanently in a farming environment properly, no matter the weathers or conditions. It would be a dream come true for me to be given the chance to pursue.
