Experience working with 135hp, 175hp and 215hp tractors and a Manitou loader. Work involved grain carting with a 14-tonne trailer, towing the header and escorting the combine, cultivations using the carrier, rolls, spring tines with JD Green Star guidance system. I also have experience of mowing, turning, and baling throughout the haymaking season.
I lambed on a farm in Wales during my first year of study at Harper Adams University which involved moving sheep, castrating, bedding up, vaccinating and tubing lambs. We have 300 ewes on our home farm; we tend to lamb inside. Tasks that I have completed at home include; bottle feeding the cades, foot bathing, worming, drenching, ear tagging, along with other tasks such as injecting when necessary and weighing lambs.
