Since the age of 12 I have worked with livestock. I specialise in sheep and cattle. Over the years I have worked with Blackface, NCC, Blueface Leicesters, scotch mules and texels. I have also worked with shorthorn X, Aberdeen Angus and Simmental x. I have an exceptional proven track record in record keeping, project management and team leadership.
