I have always had a passion for agriculture. More so towards Beef cattle and arable.
I have helped on a farm all my childhood (beef and arable)
I worked on a arable farm for 3 years before landing a job on my friends Dairy and arable farm, which later became beef and arable. I was here for 4.5 years and only left to lack of salary after dairy cows went.
I went to work on a 3500 acre arable farm for a friend as a skilled arable operator, but I dearly missed livestock. So went back into mixed farming.
I am very passionate about conservation, wildlife and nature. Ideally I would like to work for someone who has similar interests and love of wildlife preservation.
