Have some experience driving tractors doing jobs such as, topping, grain carting and preparing the soil to be drilled. Also have experience of driving a quad on a variety of terrains.
Have milked for a small run family farm since 2016 and still do occasional milking. They have around 250 head of cattle including stores, I have milked, calved, reared on calfs, done some small amount of telehandler driving (no ticket) along with some tractor work.
The past couple of years I have also worked on another dairy farm calving and rearing the calves. At this farm I was responsible for ensuring the cows calved without any issues and rearing on the calves.
I have lambed now for the last 3 seasons lambing from 100 to 1000 ewes, on a variety of farms for a number of people. I can happily work alone but also in a team. I have lambed indoor and outdoor on a variety of terrains.
For the past year and a half I have been shepherding a hill farm in mid Wales Machynlleth, here I have managed the sheep side of the farm. I have done many yearly tasks such as drenching and foot care.
I also train my own sheepdogs in my spare time I have fully trained and part trained dogs but have a keen interest in doing more of this in the future.
Outside of work I have a very keen interest in training sheepdogs. I also have an interest with horses, and currently own one which I occasionally use to check the sheep and check the land. I also attend young farmers which hopefully we'll be able to attend very soon. I also thoroughly enjoy going to local shows and also royal Welsh throught the year.
