I grew up on a 1500 acre hill farm in the Cairngorms in Scotland where we had 700 hill sheep and 50 head of cattle. I worked on this on and off till I moved to England and then worked on it part time during the busy times until my grandfather retired. Since moving to England I went to brooksby Melton college where I did a land based operations course and a nvq2 in land based service engineering. Whilst I was at college I was working 3 to 4 days a week on a dairy farm milking at weekends and other odd jobs when I was not at college. I have worked for various agricultural contractors over the harvest period. I was until recently working on a farm in England with beef cattle and sheep. I am currently a shepherd on a large estate in the Angus glens looking after 1800 sheep and highland cattle.
I have a wife and 3 children aged 10 9 and 7
I like to keep fit and spend time with the family do a lot of outdoor walking.

I grew up on a hill farm in Scotland where we had 50 hill cows and 800 black faced sheep I worked on this farm up until I was 18 by then I was part time as I was living in England and then I went on and worked on a dairy farm milking 140 cows through a 20/20 herringbone parlour. I was helping calve rearing and other duties round the farm. I then went on to work in a other industry for a while as couldnt find any more farm work due to the previous employer retirement. I got a chance to get back to farming for a few months with a agricultural contractor, there I was tractor driving with the seasonal team grass and maize silage and muck spreading and bale carting. Since then as stated above I have been working on a small beef and sheep farm up until his retirement.
Since then I have been working as a shepherd on a large estate in the Angus glens I have my own dogs.
