CV Headline

I am an 19 year old Irish farmer. At the minute I have just transfered agricultural colleges as I discovered I was studying the wrong aspect of farming. Born and bred on a beef and sheep farm. I have a strong interest in arable and mechanics. Although only a couple of years of demanding tractor driving I have a very strong interest and always give my full concentration and effort. I am quick learner and very happy to be taught anything I haven't done before. Good sense of humour and easy to work with. Will always give my all in any task given. I have quite a good knowledge of agriculture such as livestock and tractors and machinery but anything I don't know as I said before I'm a more than happy to listen and be taught.

We also have 110 sheep with over 130 lambs of mainly Suffolk and texel and also a small number of scotch black face sheep to inhabit our mountainous ground.
