Other livestock experience

I have done 3 lambings on a farm in Newtown, they lamb 650 ewes mixed breeds, texel, welsh, suffolk and mules. Ive milked a handful of times and have lived on 2 dairy farms, one organic grass based with block calving and one indoor all-year round calving so have an understanding of each. I have also helped out on 2 different poultry farms chick tipping and walking the sheds.

Although Ive not had a full-time job in the farming industry I have a rounded knowledge of a few different areas. Growing up both my parents were agronomists and I spent most of my school holidays going round farms with my dad. I have always been involved in farming one way or another, I also studied Agro-ecology at Harper as a postgrad.

I currently work as a gardener/ ranger, working outdoors in all weathers, and have gained a variety of LANTRA machinery tickets during my time there.
