Other livestock experience

I have milked cows at college but not regularly and have a part time job rearing dairy calves. During college lambing placements I worked on a sheep dairy, outdoor and indoor lambing systems, one with beef cattle also on site. My regular college placement was on a beef and sheep farm with beef shorthorns and Dorset Downs. I still go to help here on a weekly basis. At college I did one season showing dairy cattle and have since had a go at showing beef cattle at my work experience. My college course did include some pig work but this was very limited.

Farming background

Did a two year college course at Brinsbury, part of Chichester College. This included units on pigs, sheep, beef and dairy production, livestock husbandry, estate skills, machinery operations and maintenance and arable crops. On the college farm there was an extensive dairy unit and about 250 ewes which students had to help lamb. We also had to do lambing experience which I spent on a sheep dairy and other indoor and outdoor systems. I have regularly helped on a small beef and sheep farm for almost 2 years.


I enjoy doing craft, attending karate and a fitness bootcamp. I also help with Scouts and Beaver Scouts weekly.
