Farming background

I have around five years experience in farming, mainly as a Herdsman on dairy farms ranging from 60 to 300 cows working in a variety of different systems. I am not originally from a farming background and I started off working on farms in Gloucestershire to gain experience in general farm work and Herdsman skills. Three years ago I moved to Devon to work on a 300 cow Spring calving dairy where I progressed from Herdsman to Herd Manager after 18 months. For the last three months I have been working on a beef and sheep farm. Please see my CV and cover letter for more information.


I follow many sports including football, rugby and I play five aside football.
