Hedge cutting for over thirty years, ploughing and cultivations, carting produce back to farm by tractor and trailer, muck spreading, operating grain handling equipment and the grain drier. Looked after calves and heifers, baled straw and carted the bales, general workshop duties, machinery maintenance and building repairs.
