Farming background

I have a variety of experience on multiple farms both in the UK and Australia. I have worked in the dairy and sheep industries. I have done lambing indoors in the UK doing the usual indoor lambing jobs: penning up ewes and lambs, taking ewes and lambs out to the field with quad and trailer, tailing lambs, record keeping.

I have worked on calf units rearing dairy replacements and beef calves.

I have previously worked sheepdogs. I currently just have a 7 month old pup who I am training to work sheep.

I have a keen interest in regenerative farming and conservation grazing. I am particularly passionate about native breeds and using them for land management.
