I am a hard-working individual who takes pride in all aspects of work including animal husbandry. I ensure all records are up to date and all aspects of farm assurance are adhered to. Having spent the majority of farming career looking and rearing beef animals, I ensure all animals and duties are done to the best of my ability. I enjoy tractor work, and have mowed, baled and looked after my own silage crops. I have a PA1 and PA2 qualification, but have never had the need to spray on current farm. I always strive to ensure the best work is carried out, and am willing to learn and train if needed.

In 2015 I set up my own dairy unit and milked British Fresian cows, on a Medina/Watsons contract.
All calves were kept, some as dairy replacements, and others reared and sold as stores at approx. 12 months.
When we moved to our current farm, I had a beef suckler herd of 45, Simmential cross cows. Calved in March/April and youngstock were sold at yearlings the following April.
Worked alongside my father, running his beef suckler herd of 120 Simmential cross cows.
Calved in March/April and youngstock were sold at yearlings the following April.
Worked at an 1100 acre arable and sheep farm. Where I looked after the 100 beef cows, these were fed on a straw and cereal ration and arable tractor work.
I have always spent many years relief milking on many dairy farms on the Island, which has involved milking, general farm duties, rearing calves and general tractor work.
