CV Headline

 I have studied extremely hard and am hoping to perform well in these examinations. I have a keen interest in farming having been raised on a busy farm environment. Currently our farm caters for 100 lambing ewes and a further 800- 1000 lambs for feeding. Even though I have been concentrating on my studies for the last number of months I have still managed to help out any time that I was able to. On many occasions work required was carried out in the mornings prior to going to school. I really enjoy this work and am willing to learn and advance my career in this area. My experience to date has enabled me to learn a lot about machinery, tractors, planting and producing new grassland. Today's farming industry requires the production of healthier, more sustainable farming methods and I have a keen interest in learning about these methods so that farming can progress as a lucrative industry. I am 17 years of age and possess a driving license for operating tractors. Since achieving this earlier this year I have gained valuable experience under the direction of my Father and Grand Uncle. I would really love to get the opportunity to advance my skills and I am willing to relocate for work.
