I have experience putting up and taking down electric fencing. Confident on a quad bike. I have driven a tractor a few times so relatively confident, but I do not do it very often. I am also currently applying for my HGV license.
Sheep- I work with a contract shepherd who runs a flock of 500 Romneys and 500 Welsh Mules. Confident using all sheep equipment, jabbing, setting up handling systems, foot trimming, fencing, ear tagging etc.
Cattle- I am confident moving cattle, loading onto a lorry, pushing up a race. My experience is somewhat limited but I have helped with jabbing, ear tagging, and de-horning.
I have a 16 month old Kelpie X who I am training.
Outside of work I spend a lot of time around horses. I also enjoy live music.
Around 5 foot 6, weight 7.5 stone.
2020- Began working with sheep. This included rearing 65 orphan lambs so lots of attention to detail, picking up diseases. All aspects of shepherding, docking tails, jabbing, foot trimming, shearing etc.

I would like to work on a friendly farm, with a good work environment. I would preferably like to work in the North of England, but as I am from the Cotswolds I would have to find accommodation,
