I have been the Manager of 2 Beef herds, one suckler-based farm and one beef finishing based farm of 100 cows and 400 sheep and 50 cows and 100 sheep respectively. I have worked throughout lambing and calving seasons on these 2 separate farms for the past 10 years gaining extensive experience on handling animals during these times. Duties included caretaking of livestock on suckler beef and sheep farm to include vaccination, drenching and general healthcare of all animals as well as monitoring store cattle average daily weight gain throughout the month to ensure they meet necessary requirements. Any individual or group of stock not meeting requirements needed investigated as to why and appropriate action was then taken to address this. Experience in book keeping and management of farm records in accordance with DARD farming standards as well as financial records. I am qualified in AI for cows and have been successfully implementing this practice into my own herd and the other farms that I work on. I also source top quality breeding replacements for my own herd from throughout Ireland.
