Farming background

I grew up on a large dairy herd in Dorset, working with a herd of around 4500 HF dairy cows. At 13 I started working part-time, mostly carrying out simple tasks around the yard and in the workshop, progressing to a role of a relief tractor driver at the age of 16. At 18 after completing college, I was took on as a general farm worker, carrying out tasks such as muck spreading; tedding; trailer work; bale hauling; secondary cultivations and umbilical slurry spreading. During this time I also travelled away to work on an arable farm in Essex as a harvest worker for two consecutive harvests. This enabled me to pursue further experience in all aspects of arable farming including grain carting, primary and secondary cultivations, OSR drilling, relief spraying and grain handling. At the age of 19 I started attening univeristy to acheive a BSc in Agricultural management as well as working at home tractor driving. At the age of 20 I started as a Trainee Manager on the dairy side of the business.

Hobbies

I am interested in electronics and small projects including working on cars. I also run my own agricultural photography page.
