I am regularly left to look after the ewes independently and have experience with:
•General animal husbandry such as waters, bedding down and feeding using the forklift

•Maintaining excellent hygiene throughout lambing such as mucking out every lambing pen after use to minimise disease risk
I have a keen eye for detail and can spot problems early.
In my previous employment i have helped with the cattle, e.g. vaccinations, TB testing and feeding.
