I have experience in tractor driving, mainly using John Deere tractors(i.e. corn carting, cultivations, scraping out dairy cow sheds, etc.). I also have experience using my PA6 ticket, I have my PA2 as well yet I haven't had a chance to use it properly. I have experience with working in herringbone parlours with ADF clusters and swing overs as well as rotaries.
I have worked on a suckler beef herd which is holding just over 2000 mixed breed beef animals, which block claves calves around 750 each year. I also have experience on a dairy farm milking around 180 cows who are calving all year round. I then went onto work on a very large dairy farm in Cheshire just below Chester, the farm has a rotary parlour which milks just under 2000 cows 3 times a day, they also calve all year round so I have worked at the calving unit as well as in the parlour. Now, I have just finished as a harvest work on Quex park estate which were farming around 3000 acres of combinable crops, I was carting with a John Deere 7530 with a HM trailer on the back which could hold up to 18 tonnes of grain in.

No health problems.
Have worked on the college dairy and also a dairy/arable in Kent. Have also worked on a large arable in Bedfordshire and also on a large potato farm in South Australia whilst travelling. I have worked on a large beef and arable/contracting company based in Kent; this is the farm with the large suckler herd which I mentioned before. I spent summer 2020 working for Frontier in a grain lab however I would like to be back corn carting.
