Farming background

Worked in the national farm research unit for 3 months carrying out research studies on livestock, arable and sprays. Most of my work experience is centred around livestock farms and I have virtually no machinery experience, however I am keen to try all aspects of farming and so I would like to get more experience with arable work. Health and safety in the workplace and first aid in the workplace courses completed.


I am currently undertaking a BSc degree in Agriculture at Harper Adams. Outside of work and uni I like to go shooting, snowboarding, to music festivals and I’ve always wanted to go on a hunt. I also occasionally go on outings with the off-road society at university. My goal is to gain a position on placement in New Zealand on a beef and sheep farm in my third year of uni.
