Farming background

A farming business farming c.3,500 acres within 10 miles of its base farm, growing potatoes, combinable crops for seed, and vining peas. I was entrusted with the efficient operation and maintenance of a 1yr old New Holland CR9.90 equipped with a 35ft header. My responsibilities encompassed the entire harvest process, including machine setup, operation, grain monitoring, quality control, and logistical arrangements for transport and field movements. Throughout the season, I successfully harvested a variety of crops, predominantly seed wheat, seed barley, and oilseed rape, consistently maintaining optimal grain quality. My commitment to meticulous maintenance and proactive problem-solving ensured the seamless operation of the machine, minimising downtime and contributing to a successful harvest.

Furthermore, when out visiting customers with salesman, to offer advice and help with demos, I demonstrated strong communication skills. I was able to contribute to successful brand exposure while demoing machinery at dealer events and shows around the country. Additionally, my organisational skills ensured the smooth delivery of competitive combine sales training and major events like Cereals & Tillage Live. I also contributed to office tasks like price comparison, machinery movement organisation for shows, and training material creation, demonstrating attention to detail and a commitment to teamwork.

•Overall Farm Operation I also performed high responsibility jobs including drilling OSR and secondary cultivations. Through this role, I gained valuable experience in agricultural organisation, machinery operation, and team collaboration.

Seasonal Worker. Apr-Sept 19, Apr-Sept 20, Christmas & Easter Hols 20/21/22

At this farm, a large c.35,000-acre farm business, I worked as seasonal worker for a number of seasons. From this, I operated a wide range of advanced equipment, including guidance-equipped Fendt, Valtra, and Case tractors, JCB telehandlers, and Volvo wheel loaders. This led to a diverse range of jobs including: •Planting and harvest support Seed and parts delivery for maize drilling, stacking, and loading potatoes, carting various crops (rye, potatoes, grain, and maize) •Precision agriculture Application of liquid fertilizer with Agrifac Condor 3, ensuring optimal crop nutrition and resource efficiency.
