I have a class 1 HGV licence currently on furlough until I need it again.
I have used a tractor for discs, harrows, ploughing and chisel ploughing. Also muck and fertiliser spreading.
Tracked machine experience was mostly armoured vehicles but have used one in my garden and I have a H licence to drive on the highway.
Ploughing was carried out when I first entered farming and also at Binton farm on ground prep for salad crops and also other tillage work when I worked for myself.
I have used my own tractor and articulated loader doing tillage and muck spreading on dairy and arable farms when I ran my own business.
Team leader qualification was obtained when I repaired and refurbished cash point machines.
I have repaired many fences over time and also helped put up new post and stock fencing with barbed wire and also pig proof stock netting.
My first job was milking cows and I have worked with all other animal groups and hold an NPTC certificate to carry livestock on journeys over 8 hours.
I am a good competent welder and can repair critical structures (Front loader brackets, steering linkages etc).
Walk the dogs Buy and sell things from auction. Repair tools and things for resale.
Small back problem so not looking for heavy manual work however I use things to aid me in a task such as using a wheelbarrow to move a bale or using axle stands to lift things to a comfortable height for me to work on or a pit or similar.
General tillage work preparing fields for planting with plough, harrows, discs, fertiliser and muck spreading and also making up seed beds for salad crops. I have also had limited experience harvesting soft fruit.
