Jack from Cornwall, just graduated with a BSc degree in Agriculture. Have a passion for livestock and am interested in breeding quality livestock mainly but also do enjoy the arable and machinery side of agriculture. I ran a farm for someone in Cornwall during my gap years where I kept pedigree south Devon cows and about 200 ewes. This was a great experience as I had full control of the farm most of the year. Have work for 2 large contractors also in the past, so have good knowledge with a range of machinery and am a very competent operator. Also I have kept my own small flock of sheep for a number of years (some pedigree too!)

Farming background

From when I was 16 untill I became 18 I worked on a dairy farm doing a wide range of work, then i went on to a beef, sheep and arable farm during the harvest period. from this I went to work on a large dairy and then after a while went to work for a agricultural contractor. I then had the opportunity of a stockman/ foreman job where I looked after a farm for somebody who lived away. I knew to further my career in agriculture I had to get my degree so went to hartpury. Whilst there I worked around my lectures on a beef farm and also would spend my Easter holidays lambing in oxfordshire on a different farm as they always liked having me back. Once finishing uni I travelled to america and worked on a cattle ranch. I have now recently returned home.
