I have used a variety of equipment over the years ranging in size, due to the nature of the roles that I have held most of this relates back to yard work, slurry tanking, silage making and carting, mowing and topping, fertilizer spreading, corn and straw carting, TMR feeding and telehandler work.
Although I have some machinery experience, I am not mechanically minded and preferably looking for a role that does not require too much tractor work.
I started working with cows as an apprentice at the age of 16 and find myself still there at 38 with the exception of 2 years out looking at other careers.
