CV Headline

Born and bred in sunny Yorkshire, worked on a dairy farm for just over a year and a half and can honestly say I couldn't think of doing anything else or working in a different sector other than Agriculture. Have experience with all aspects of cattle. Also experience with TMR feeders as I used to feed 280 high yielding Holsteins twice a day seven days a week. When I was working there it was my job in looking after heifers from 2 months through to calving. Also experience with tractor work, slurry tanking mainly and also helped out when silaging. I also have plenty of telehander experience as I did the TMR feed mix twice a day. Willing to learn to further my career. I then moved to Stafford To be a herdsman on a robotic herd, tacking all duties inlcuding vet visits, foot trimming, drying off and calving, TMR feeding, scraping out, heifer rearing and some tractor work. I then moved back to Yorkshire to work closer to home on a pedigree Jersey farm, where I undertake all aspects of the day to day running of the herd, including feeding with Keenan feeder wagon, irrigation, slurry tanking, mucking our, carting corn and silage.    I now work work as a herdsman on a dairy farm just on the outskirts of Penrith, Cumbria! I am trusted in the day to day running of the herd talking with our main tractor driver about our TMR ration with our nutrionist, undertake biweekly vet routine visits, cattle AI, foot trimming and calving!    More references upon request
