Other livestock experience

The past farms I have worked on have been a mixture of sheep and cattle but most of my knowledge is with sheep. I have about 6 years lambing experience with my own flock of 50 ewes and helped at lambing on other farms. I have also been shearing for 6 seasons now and still wanting to improve. Also quite confident dosing and jagging sheep. A previous farm I worked on had 200 limousin and simmental cross calves which were all kept inside and fattened and I fed them with a keenan feeder wagon and either bedded them with a Mchale bedder or just rolled the bales out. Also I help my dad out with his small herd of cattle at home, feeding, bedding, dosing etc. The job im currently at is a hill farm in the Scottish Borders which has 1600 Blackie ewes with roughly 60 cross ewes. All the wedder lambs and reject hoggs are fattened in the shed and first and second draft hoggs are taken to winter grazing.
