Farming background

Born and raised on a mixed farm in South Wales and worked full time in farming since I was 17. I have strong workshop skills and can generally fix 90% of breakdowns. I have a lot of experience with GPS systems having used them since 2008. I am currently head tractor driver on 1100ha contract farming where I do the majority of spraying and share the drilling, combining, fertilising and cultivating with the owner. Before that I lived in Saskatchewan, Canada for four and a half years where I was an owner operator truck driver for 2.5 years hauling grain and bulk fertiliser and head tractor driver for 2 years on a 2,400ha farm. I have worked for 3 large contractors in the UK, one at home in South Wales and the others in England in Nothamptonshire and West Sussex. My roles for the contractors included drilling, baling, cultivation and every other general tractor driver job in between. My livestock skill are fairly basic where my previous roles on farms I have been involved in the general husbandry from young stock to finishers.
