I am from Northants. I would like to expand my experience across the sector. My experience is mostly arable and have experienced most operations involved in the production of cereals, such as spraying drilling and combining. I am willing to work long hours and I am able to travel.

PA4 G+S, PA6. I have an arable background, using Claas, John Deere, and New Holland combines. I have used Batemen sprayers and Weaving drills. I have done most operations including, Fert Spreading, avadexing, slug pelleting, cultivations, corn carting, big square baling, bale carting and loading, grainstore work
I have limited experience with stock but I am very keen to learn more. At home we keep 100 store lambs, so I have experience in handling and racing sheep. I also have helped a couple of farmers locally with TB testing and the like with cattle. On my gap year in New Zealand, I worked as a relief milker as well as a tractor driver, and so have used Swing over parlours, milking anywhere between 400-900 cows a milking.

2015-2018 - Harvest operative. Responsibilities included corn carting, loader work, cultivations and assisting with combine maintenance.
Harvest 2019 - I worked for a large arable contractor, main duties were corn carting, relief combining and cultivations, as well as other tasks associated with harvest.
2019-2020 - Travelling Australia and New Zealand, I worked on an arable and sheep farm in Australia, driving a combine and assisting with the merino sheep unit.
Harvest 2020 - I was a combine driver for a large local arable farm, responsible for all maintenance and organising logistics with corn cart drivers. I also drove a big square baler from mid august onwards, after finishing harvest so early, which also included loading out straw lorries.
Since then I have drilled for another local farmer and been back working at home since we entered the November Lockdown. My main duties have been spraying and drilling, as well as the day to day running of the farm.
