I live on a 150 cattle dairy farm with 80+ livestock, in the year of 2019-2020 I worked on a 250 herd dairy farm with a heifer raising unit where I was able to broaden my livestock husbandry skills and grow my experience on different enterprises. With three years of lambing experience and a year of calf rearing I also have small experience with machinery operations, something I hope to expand.
