Farming background

2016-2018 Farm. Working on weekends in between my last year at school and was my work placement for my first year at college as a full time student. Here I assisted milking 400 cross breed cows in a 40:80 swing over parlour. I was responsible for the hygiene of the parlour and cows pre and post milking.

2018-current Farm. I completed my level 3 apprenticeship here and I am now a general farm worker. I am responsible for all calves including feeding, bedding, hygiene and health. I am competent dehorning, vaccinating, ring castrating and spotting any sick calves. I have completed trials on farm to compare different milk powders. I can bolus and drench youngstock. I am able to calve a cow and monitor the health of cows, spotting after birth problems, mastitis and lame cows. Working closely with the vets at FriarsMoor I have been taught basic mobility scoring, assisted with emergency call outs, surgeries and routines on the farm. I am competent to scrape the cow sheds, clean the water troughs and bed up using the telehandler and sand bucket. I have recently completed my AI course and have started serving cows and heifers. I am responsible for all cow, youngstock and calf records and enter all onto computer software. I am able to test milk for mastitis using plates and incubator . I am also able to dry off cows. Over summer I use the quad bike to check on all young stock and cake around. I will always report any issues or sick cattle immediately if spotted in fields or on farm. I always work closely with feed advisors and monthly meet with them to discuss how the cows and youngstock are doing and ways to improve. I have been to discussion groups with vets and milk buyers. I will always bring back a new idea.

Currently working on a farm near Dorchester 240 cows on robots
