started off on a youth training scheme after leaving school on a small beef and sheep farm, then moved on to dairy with a herd of 200 cows I worked there for 15 years and was known for having good stock skills and for the condition of the calves and young stock I looked after, I then moved to a even bigger dairy set up with 300 cows one one farm and 200 on another I was also there around 15 years and did everything that needed doing from relief milking to all machinery work, then I moved on to being self employed due to moving house further away so I got a job on a smaller farm with 150 brown Swiss cows and I worked there for around 8 years until the cows were sold off due to low milk prices. i also have experience of working with pigs and sheep and poultry, but predominantly my main experience has been with dairy and beef cattle farms, i am also a very capable tractor and machinery driver, i have been main tractor driver on one of my jobs but i also did stock work when it was wet weather and too wet to do any field work.
