I was a contractor working alongside a close nit team of 8 to meet regular deadlines. I was responsible for the maintenance of my own tractor during all jobs. In the winter I took control of a compost contract on my own for the company. Some other activities I took part in were straw spreading, bail carting & loading, transporting slurry & spreading, filling silage trailers and chopping maize.
From a very young age I worked alongside my dad milking cows and assisting with general farm maintenance. I was an assistant herdsman for nearly 4 years, working alongside the head herdsman to look after a herd of 300, which involved calving, foot trimming, AI, general farm work and maintenance. In all of my dairy jobs I aim to keep all bacto scans down and have a low cell count in the parlour.
