I have been working as seasonal assistance (lambing, vaccinating, sheering, dipping, scanning) in Northumberland and Peebles for almost 20 years.
Full Car Licence
Beef, Sheep, Lambing
Have experience bit no ticket.
Mainly seasonal shepherding assistant. Lambing, vaccinating, and feet. Have been working in a lambing shed of 450 at a time doing nights unsupervised for the last 8 years and assisting before that although this year I have been working on a fish farm.
I like to cook, Walk my dog and rest up.
As a child my parents moved to Colt Park, Northumberland I enjoyed working there. As a teen I found a passion for catering and followed that path. I had thought to train as a paramedic and studied and access course whilst gaining experience in a care home for people with dementia. After a stint working in retail I am enjoying being free from the fluorescent lights and working with livestock again. For the past 10 years my holidays from my "real job" have been spent doing seasonal work with ewes... Or site production crew at festivals.
