Dairy, Beef, Sheep, Lambing
I have very limited machine experience with farm machinery but am more than willing to learn.I do have a fair share of experience fencing and using a post knocker.
Worked with a variety of different breeds of sheep: suffolk, texels, mules, scottish black faces. I also have experience lambing all these breeds of sheep too.I have a small amount of knowledge surrounding beef cattle as well.
Most of my free time I spend around my family as I still with my parents and have 3 other siblings. I also spend a lot of time out walking the dog.

March 2020- April 2021
During my time here I worked very individually, I was tasked with lambing unassisted for the most part of it.I also had to clean and disinfect pens after each ewe was turned out.I had to decide which lambs I thought were ready to be turned out and which lambs and ewes would need more attention.I was responsible for bottle and tube feeding pet lambs and feeding hungry lambs that struggled to get milk.I also had to perform health checks on both the lambs and ewes and administer medication where needed. While doing this I would also castrate and tail the lambs.
April 2019-December 2019
When I worked on the estate I was responsible for maintaining the gardens.This involved grass cutting and strimming.The estate also ran a flock of 450 sheep, I assisted with dosing, vaccinating, feeding and the process of scanning.I worked within a small team of workers and sometimes individually depending on the task in hand.
Kirkley hall college
September 2019-July 2020
At college, I gained experience working with beef cattle, unfortunately I have not worked with dairy cows. However I have a true passion to work in the dairy industry. I just havent found any opening for opportunity.At the college they ran a single suckler herd of around 70 head of beef cattle which the majority were Aberdeen Angus.. I learned to administer boluses, inject and dose cattle and work out correct dosages to apply.I also learned how to condition score stock.
