Other livestock experience

I have had lots of experience with sheep and lambing as I have worked on a on a farm with a flock size of 400 ewes which gave me the basics and then last year I spent lambing on a farm with 2000 ewes. This gave me the added experience of lambing on a big scale. I carried out all the normal duties for lambing as I was left for most the day to watch the shed while the head shepherd was out in the fields. I fed and bedded up all pens, tubed lambs, looked after pet lambs and carried out the other duties. I have had lots of experience handling sheep with weighing, worming and foot bathing. As well as my lambing experience I have had experience working on a Dairy and Beef farm so I also have some knowledge and experience with cows and milking.

Farming background

I have previously worked and had experience on two different farms one of which was a beef/ sheep farm where I learnt all the basics with handling livestock. Then last year I spent lambing working on a farm which lambed 2000 ewes. This extended my knowledge on lambing and how lambing works on a big scale. I am a confident tractor driver with experience of carting, chain harrowing and mowing.
