From the North east self employed shepherd. Looking for lambing work from Nov - Mid March.
Full Car Licence, Tractor Licence
Beef, Sheep, Lambing, Calving
Competent tractor driver, happy leading/stacking bales/ feeding out, leading silage trailers, mucking out.
Many years experience in all things sheep, lambing, shearing, feet trimming, dosing, injecting, dressing (manly Swaledale as thats what we breed and sell) I do have experience with cattle and calving although Im not the most confident around cattle (mishap when I was younger knocked my confidence) but will work with cattle.
From when I was old enough Ive been out and about on our family farm. Which was initially sheep and beef due to family circumstances we now run approx 2700 sheep (2300 Swaledale ewes/gimmers/hoggs and 400 texel x ewes/gimmers) and we summer cattle. I will and do turn my hand to anything sheep related and Im current a district secretary for the Swaledale sheep breeders Association. I have worked for agricultural companies (Carrs billington and NWF) however Im happiest out of the office in my wellies and with my sheep even on rainy days (living on a hill farm we have plenty of those!!)
