4 years of working with beef cattle and 6 months on a dairy farm. I have previously taken a lead role in looking after a 150 head suckler herd, feeding, bedding, mucking out, intervening with calving when necessary and assisting the vet when needed. I also have previous experience administering subcutaneous and intra-muscular medicines, as well as experience rearing calves at the dairy farm and abandoned/orphaned calves at the beef farms I have worked on.
I have wealth of tractor work experience relating to the cattle, including muck carting, mucking out with telehandlers, feeding using King Feeder, and Keenan TMR feed wagons, and using straw choppers including McHale, Teagel, King Feeder, and also a Spread-A-Bale attachment for telehandlers.
I did one season part time lambing so have a small amount of knowledge with this but would be something I'd need to develop if necessary. I have also helped on friends farms and done foot trimming, dagging, ringing, and treating for flystrike.
