My main role is assisting the head shepherd in the day to day running of the flock, lambing 400 ewes 6 times a year, vaccinating, worming/drenching, weighing and selecting fat lambs for market, artificial rearing lambs on teat broads, electric fencing and strip grazing, dagging, foot trimming, tagging and footbathing and general sheep checks.

2015- 2020 contract shepherd. I worked as a self employed contract shepherd mainly working on 3 flocks. 1 flock had 1700 commercial suffolk cross ewes lambing from January to March, i also helped out with selecting fat lambs, worming, dagging, foot trimming and foot bathing, vaccinating and electric fencing. The 2nd flock was a 400 head pedgriee Charmoise Hill flock where i helped with lambing, dagging, foot trimming, gathering and moving stock, selecting replacement females and breeding rams and some showing experience. I also have used shearwell data stock

The last farm was my own family farm where we had 400 commercial breeding ewes lambing March / April and rearing up to 2000 claves a year on contract and fattening black and white bulls. I was mainly in control of running the flock and helped out with feeding and rearing calves, weighing, vaccinating, drenching and footbathing.
