CV Headline

19 YEAR OLD, KEEN HARD WORKING LAD NOT AFRAID TO GET HIS HANDS DIRTY. Im 19 years old. I have been brought up on farms all my life and have always had a real strong interest in farming. My fathers always been a stockman. So I have had more than plenty experience working with sheep/cattle. I have went away to a good few lambings in the past 4/5 year. During my school Easter holidays that’s how I use pass my time. It has really paid off though over the years with all the experience I have gained from going away and working from such a young age. I am currently working for a local farm contractor, mowing, rowing, tedding, carting silage for all the local farmers. i am really looking for a job with suitable accommodation for me and my partner who also has been raised on farms. My partner isn’t afraid to get her hands dirty and always likes to help out around the farm too from helping out with feeding young calves and other stock around the yard. Just always an extra pie of hands to help get the job done and finished up.  I have don’t plenty of milkings too. From milking herds as small as 150 cows on a small parlour to milking over 1100 cows on a modern up to date rotary parlour. my desired job would be a full time position on a mixed/arable farm down south. I am also willing to take on other job titles like dairy farming or stockman. But arable/mixed farming is my main interest just because I like a mixture of jobs and seasons. i am willing to relocate anywhere as long as the accommodation and job is suited.  I also have plenty of references I could get from PST employers.
