Other relevant experience. I have a 3rd class BSc Honours Degree in Applied Animal Management. This degree was both theoretical and practical and part of the course was farm management which we helped out at the college farm which consisted of dairy cows and sheep. I also worked as a volunteer at a farm sanctuary where I helped muck out the pens, excercised the horses and ensured that all the animals were fed and watered and weren't in any pain or discomfort. I have a BTEC National Diploma in Animal Management where there was a module on farm management which was both practical and theoretical. I grew up in a rural area and when I was young my family had 2 donkeys and a horse in our field which we rode and groomed on daily basis. My family have owned all dogs, rabbits, chickens, guinea pigs and a hamster.
I realise that I don't have a lot of experience in all types of farming but I am no stranger to different types of work and I have always had a passion for farm animals and will always strive to be the most reliable employee.
