Having had my own small holding of livestock (including turkeys, chickens, and horses) I am fully competent at handling and conscientiously recognising needs of stock. My previous and longest serving position has also filled me with extensive knowledge of arable farming. Have a full UK driving licence with DVSA tested towing entitlement.
