Other livestock experience

I assisted in running a 5000 acre farm with 1000 ewes and 100 beef cows. It was a conservationist-run farm, though I was made redundant as farm sold. Have worked on many farms, doing various tasks. Went to Cambridge to help out the harvest, ended up staying and carting digestate. Company bankrupt, moved back to Scotland, then my girlfriend fell pregnant and I took a job in the fishing for an income, but my heart's in farming.
