Farming background

Five years lambing experience whilst at school. Experience in a mixed farm with onsite butchery and farmshop. One year on a sheep and beef station in New Zealand. For my placement year at Aberystwyth University, I was offered a job at a ram breeder in New Zealand. I accepted this opportunity and moved out to the lower North Island a few months later. This job was farming based, with most of my time involved with stock work and farm and land maintenance as part of the farm team.
