I grew up on an exmoor hill farm but moved away during my teenage years. Since becoming self employed a couple of years ago to gain more experience over the whole agricultural sector I have pushed to gain more experience with sheep and beef and worked on an exmoor hill farm and also with a lowland sheep flock doing all aspects of work. I also have experience on a beef finishing unit as previously mentioned, my duties there were feeding, bedding and general animal husbandry, as well as keeping a close eye on health and welfare and taking out appropriate action as and when there was a health issue.
For the last year I have also taken on a new customer farming 300 breeding ewes (mainly texel), 300 head herd of Angus including young stock and grass contracting business mainly undertaking baling with a fusion.
