South African, looking for farm work in Scotland.
City and Guilds
I have a diploma in Agricultural farm management
Full Car Licence
Tractor, Combine, Ploughing, Other harvesters, Fencing
I have experience in driving tractors and forklifts as well as big 18 wheeler lorries, but I do not have any licenses for these anymore as they have either expired or cannot be used in UK as I got them in USA and South Africa. I am comfortable using any farming equipment and willing to do necessary training.
Growing up on in South Africa on our farm we had Angus for a while then went over to Nguni cattle that did better in the drought, with the cattle we also had Sheep for meat, we had two heards of sheep one was a Dorper and the other was a meatmaster damara mix, that also worked better in the drought. We did everything on the farm for the cattle and sheep so had to dose and dip them, had to help with lambing and calving.
I love running and playing rugby, also enjoy working on old cars. enjoy cooking
1.8m 76kg fit and healthy male
no health problems
2010-2013 I worked for my dad with planting and harvesting onions getting soil ready and doing everything needed around farming, including managing farm labor. during this time also had 100 head of Nguni and 2000 head of sheep. 2013-2014 I went to USA for harvesting, where we drove tractors and trucks and also helped with cutting corn and wheat for feedlots. after this I have been trying to find my place in a job that I enjoy doing but think it lies with farming. the last 5 years I have been studying and working in different areas, including being a chef and teaching English
