Since the age of 11 I have worked on many stock farms.
Between the ages of 11 and 16 I worked on a beef and sheep farm, I was on this farm every spare hour I got and is where my passion truly started .
Over the past few years during the quieter months of the winter I have worked over 4 different dairy farms completing the winter routine work.
This has involved calving cows and outwintering dry cows .
Feeding using a few different types of feeder wagon on a tmr basis, this also involved been in control of the diet on a daily basis to make sure the cows are milking to their full potential.
General morning routine jobs were also undertaken including bedding down and scraping out .
