My tractor experience has been mainly with grass management and hauling trailers. I have spent the last four harvests mowing, spinning and rowing grass for hay and silage.

I can drive tracked machines such as diggers and tracked post knockers, I spent a year working as a fencing contractor, doing various agricultural fencing i have also spent time driving diggers up to 12tone, ditching and ground work for horse areas putting in drains.

Other livestock experience

Whilst I was at college I helped on a sheep dairy farm, there I milked and lambed whist helping with the day to day running of the farm such as feeding with a feeder wagon. Then I worked with a small herd of 60 Dexter cattle, working with them I have assisted with TB testing, feeding and bedding up. Most recently I have been a beef herdsman looking after a heard of 200, here I have been feeding, bedding down and mucking out.
