I have a small amount of experience driving tractors mainly scraping and rolling. Telehandler/forklift passed on the 17th of May.
Spent around a month on a lambing placement during my gap year. A large part of my farm work is on a local dairy farm when I am not at University bedding up, milking and moving stock.
Student at Harper Adams University
I am not from a typical farming background, however I have gained my interest from many of my extended family members who farm themselves and also work experience that I have completed in the past. My experience compared to other people is likely much less, however I am very willing to learn and try anything and I am able to work well by myself or as part of a team.
