Not much experience in the field but fed on a large intensive unit with large machinery feeding out a TMR ration. Always willing to learn new skills when necessary.
I have worked on dairy farms since I was 15 and progressed through. I have experience on a large intensive AYR farm, a large grass based farm which incorporated a 1OD herd towards the end of my time there, a 400/400 split autumn/spring block grazing unit and a 600 spring organic grazing unit. My roles have varied and include assistant herdsman, herdsman, 2ic and herd manager. I range of skills including AI, foot trim and PD. Good animal husbandry and veterinary skills but always looking to further my knowledge and broaden my skill set.
I also have experience in beef including bull beef.
Call or email if you would like more references as would be happy to give any relevant to the position.
Have a fiance and are looking to settle down and start a family so looking for a longer term opportunity.
We have 2 dogs so enjoy walking and we are both keen on gardening. Enjoy seeing family and friends when possible. I also like to keep fit outside work.
I'm not from a farming background but my love of animals and particularly dairy cows started my journey into the dairy industry which I fell in love with on my first experience of it. Since then I have worked hard to learn what I can but always want to be better. Working as a general farm worker, assistant herdsman, herdsman, 2ic and herd manager I have gained a wide range of experience.
