I used to have telehandler licence which has lapsed. My experience ranges from fast road applications such as Fastrac driving to operating subsoilers on Quadtracs. I also have experience using Catros style tillage equipment. I have worked on a 6500 acre farm outside of Cambridge and was able to use their entire range of tractors.
Back in 2000-1 i was involved in the daily milking of 1100 Holstein cattle in New Zealand. I was also involved in the management of male stock across the farm. Within the sheep side of the business I was involved in the movement of stock around pastures, daily checking for fallen stock and for new lambs. I assisted in the shearing of the flock. The flock was approximately 8000.
