My first experience of working with sheep and lambing was helping my Grandad with his 50 sheep and also on my friends farm of 300 Pedigree Texel sheep.  I worked in a dairy of 600 Jersey cows and 300 off spring for two years. I have been working on an outdoor pig unit for nearly two years.   This includes general rearing of 500 pigs with a 3 batch system where we farrow 100 in each batch.  After a year I was promoted to being in charge of 2 members of staff.  Upon being made redundant I then took employment on a dairy farm where my main duties are looking after and rearing calves. I have experience of handling my Grandad's Pedigree Hereford which I show at agricultural shows.
