Some experience driving a tractor and fencing at college.
Some ATV experience.
Worked with a herd of Red Poll cattle at Shuttleworth College carrying out vaccinations, health checks, assessing condition of stock for breeding and slaughter, some calving, feeding, mucking out, and grooming for show.
Worked with a flock of approximately 250 Suffolk Cross sheep at Shuttleworth college carrying out tasks such as vaccinations, worming, pregnancy diagnosis and spraying sheep according to the colour code for single/twin lambs, feeding orphan lambs, feeding pregnant ewes, navel dipping, castration, tail docking, ear tagging and hoof trimming. I was also chosen as a stockjudge for breeding ewes as part of the Smithfield Show in 2016. I have observed shearing as well.
I have some experience with goats at college carrying out basic tasks such as mucking out, feeding, grooming and health checks.
Currently working on a dairy farm milking the herd of 380 cows twice a day (mixture of commercial crosses, Danish Red, Norwegian Red and Shorthorn) and cleaning the parlour. Have also fed calves both with a bucket and bottle, treated dry cows and checked ear tag numbers for paperwork.
Previously owned chickens as pets.
I am a very outdoorsy person so spend as much of my time as I can outdoors in nature. I enjoy walking and caring for my 2 dogs (a Welsh Sheepdog and a Westie). Dog training is a big passion of mine and I'd also like to train my sheepdog to herd as he is from strong working lines. I also enjoy foraging and have recently started fishing, I enjoy these things as it installs a connection between our food and where it came from as well as meaning I can spend time in nature. Photography is another hobby of mine and I mainly take photos of the landscape, nature and my dogs.
Height: 5' 5" Weight: 59kg I am currently working on a dairy farm. I have also travelled all over the Scottish Highlands and am from Bedfordshire. I am 20 years old, and although I do not have a farming background the agricultural industry is something I am keen to work in, ideally working with livestock as I have always wanted to work with animals. I am punctual, ambitious and keen to learn.

I would ideally like to work on a livestock farm, preferably with sheep as I have more knowledge and experience with them but I would also be more than happy and eager to work with other species of livestock. A position where accommodation is available for 2 people is essential. Would love to work in Scotland or the South West of England but happy to work anywhere in the UK.
