Farming background

I’m not from a farming background. I got interested helping a friend with a small flock of sheep when I was young, helping with fencing, lambing, shearing. When I left school I went to agricultural college to study mixed agriculture and decided to go to a dairy farm for work experience, I helped with milking, calf feeding, moving cattle. I then decided dairy farming was what I want to do. I then went on to do an apprenticeship specialising in dairy production and this was a 2 year course, I carried on working on the farm I did while on the apprenticeship gradually taking on more responsibility and eventually becoming assistant herdsman.


when i am not in work i like to socialise with friends and family and go to the gym
