October 2018 - November 2018 Farm, Axmouth, Honiton - Milker and general farm worker.
The role involved milking Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. Covering lunchtime and evening milking sessions with 3 days off every 2 weeks. I prepped the parlour including all machinery ensuring quality and compliance to minimise the risk of poor quality production. I worked in teams of 3-4, rotating from parlour to yard work which mainly involved bedding and herding according to demand. The parlour was a 20 capacity Herringbone and I have experience in milking for calves.
