Manitou and JCB telehandler use daily for feeding, bedding up, stacking etc. Chainsaw and quadbike licence.

Other livestock experience

As farm manager for aFarm. I am responsible for two members of staff, 90 herd of cattle and 500 sheep. The herd consists of 40 breeding Polled Charolais bought from anAlwent herd in 2018. I successfully completed an A.I. course and participated in embryo transfer programs. I completed calving with thankfully no c-sections and am pleased to see the calves growing strong. I also manage the administrative tasks that come with running a pedigree herd. Many aspects of this job were new to me, being my first management role. I enjoy rising to a challenge and achieving great outcomes. One of the most exciting and rewarding tasks is managing the Dromonby flock, which consists of 32 Texel donors and 400 recipients (mule) ewes. I am proud to have achieved much success with embryo transfer in sheep.

Having got back from Australia. I went in search of a job working with both cattle and sheep. This is when I found G*******Estate. 180 herd of commercial/ pedigree Limousin X British Blue. 650 breeding Texel X Mule ewes. This was the perfect opportunity to combine what I had learnt on other farms and strengthen my skills. Whist working at G*******I gained experienced with lambing, calving, showing and the daily routine of working a commercial beef and sheep system. Tickets gained; quadbike, chainsaw and telehandler.

Having phoned through the different cattle breed societies looking for work. I was kindly given to the opportunity by J*******M********to spend 3 weeks work experience with him. J*******maintained very high level of welfare, standards in which I hope to uphold throughout my career.

Over my time on C********stud I learnt about artificial insemination and the flushing of embryos. The handling of cattle was very particular with the highest welfare standards. The selective breeding and care around cattle made for a very calm herd. After having a break from working with cattle it made me realise how much I enjoyed it and hope to do it in the future.

I worked on the dairy farm over two calving seasons. During calving, I learnt various veterinary skills and the ability to remain head strong under pressure. Starting milking in the early hours of the morning and finishing late at night, working long hours does not discourage me.

GWF - Both an arable and livestock farm I took part in daily husbandry for a herd of Hereford cattle including halter training for the showing season.

The selective breeding and care around cattle made for a very calm herd. After having a break from working with cattle it made me realise how much I enjoyed it and hope to do it in the future.

It was clear to me that one aspect of farming which I needed to gain experience on was my field work. B*******Hill is a 8,000 hectare mixed arable/ sheep farm in the South West of Australia. Here I drove a number of farm machinery and cultivated the land ready for drilling. Sheep work consisted mainly of mauling and vaccinating.

Whilst in Perth I had a temporary job assembling a 30-metre demo WeedIt Sprayer. I gained great knowledge in working with power tools and the production of farm machinery.

I worked on the farm over two calving seasons. During calving, I learnt various veterinary skills and the ability to remain head strong under pressure. Starting milking in the early hours of the morning and finishing late at night, working long hours does not discourage me.

Both an arable and livestock farm I took part in daily husbandry for a herd of Hereford cattle including halter training for the showing season. Focusing mainly on potatoes, during spring I would calculate yields as well as a general farm hand. Come harvest tasks evolved, trailer driving and packaging of the potatoes.
