Mechanical engineer (currently on furlough/sabbatical) with some agricultural experience seeking temporary farm work in Scotland. I am interested in agriculture and would like to gain experience with livestock, perhaps I could assist with lambing.
Mainly Livestock, Mixed Farming
I have a technical background (mechanical engineering) and my farming experience is limited, but I am interested in agriculture and I'd like to learn more.
Full Car Licence
I helped a friend during the wheat harvest and drove a combine. I also have good experince using a chainsaw.
I have some stock experience from helping on a dairy farm (250 Holstein cows). However this was often non-manual work, such as preparation of drawings to seek planning permission for a new shed and covered collection yard. The farmers explained the workings of a dairy farm to me (calving, calf rearing, hay and silage making, feeding, milking etc) and I once assisted with calving.
I am physically fit and don't mind getting my hands dirty.
I like the outdoors, hill walking and cycling.
