Worked on a dairy farm. The farm was very hands on and not a modern parlour due to the cows being milked in stalls. Whilst working in Gisburn I also helped out on a neighbouring dairy where they had robotic milkers, which gave insight to the way that dairy is heading to in the future. In October 2010 I was in Devon working 3 days a week and weekend helping to cover on another dairy farm, daily milking and most farm duties, including feeding, mucking/scraping out, slurry spreading, harvesting and carting which were new experiences to me.

Farming background

My interest in farming started around 14 years ago, having been on a family holiday on a dairy farm. On this holiday I helped out on morning and evening milking.      Once home I set about getting work experience locally and started work for a farmer who has a sheep farm. My duties included feeding, tagging, collecting and sorting, lambing and shearing. I also help out at hay making time during the summer. Although I don’t work for Robert full time due to being at college and working in other areas whenever I am home I am always called upon to help out.      After finishing school at 16 I started at Bishop Burton to complete a National Diploma in Agriculture which I thoroughly enjoyed, I lived on campus which was a real eye opener as I hadn’t lived away from home before but was also a great experience and a big learning curve. I gained a lot of knowledge and experience at Bishop Burton. From September 2008 whilst still at Bishop Burton I found work at a local farm shop, serving on the meat counter and helping out with the  fruit and veg. the farm shop is very much into organic produce and home produced beef.  At the end of my course in June 2010, I got a summer job on a dairy farm in Gisburn, living in on farm accommodation (caravan). The farm was very hands on and not a modern parlour due to the cows being milked in stalls. Whilst working in Gisburn I also helped out on a neighbouring dairy where they had robotic milkers, which gave insight to the way that dairy is heading to in the future. In October 2010 I was in Devon working 3 days a week and weekend helping to cover on another dairy farm, daily milking and most farm duties, including feeding, mucking/scraping out, slurry spreading, harvesting and carting which were new experiences for me. In April 2011, I started work on an arable farm in Hatfield, Hertfordshire, living in a semi detached house supplied by my employer. The farm has given me much needed experience of the arable sector an area I had never delved into before, it has given me a great insight into what has to be done to grow crops, I have been involved in all aspects, such as grain carting, ploughing, drilling, combining, hedge cutting, spraying. In June 2015 I started work on a 4000 acre arable farm in Aberdeenshire which was previously owned by the co-operative. This post was only for the harvest period which I was in charge of drying approximately 1800 acres made up of wheat, barley and oil seed rape using a 30 tonne continuous flow dryer. I also carted the grain using a case puma 155 and 15 tonne stewart trailer. 2016 I spent the year working for a number of local farmers as and when required from milking-lambing-silaging-muck spreading,whilst rearing my own flock of sheep. As of March 2017 I started work on an arable farm in Essex taking responsibility for all primary and secondary cultivation’s and drilling using a cat challenger 775e and New Holland tractors all running Rtk guidance. We bale around 40,000 bales of hay which I am responsible for all the mowing and rowing up. I also undertake all the workshop jobs as I’m very mechanical minded. I will divulge my current employer at interview as I don’t want to upset the Apple cart too soon which I hope you understand.
