Other livestock experience

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.

Farming background

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
