Farming background

I attended agricultural college at the age of 16 whilst doing work experience on a large 15000 acre all arable estate, where i went on to work full time for 22 years. Starting off with doing all 'the old boy' jobs i.e mainly corn/beet/grass carting i then went on to being responsible for the mowing of 8000 acres per season of grass and lucerne using Fendt/Claas tractors and Krone triple mowers using Trimble guidance system. In the winter months i would mainly be applying variable rate fertiliser with a Bredal B8 spreader. Also spent a few years operating a 535 Quadtrac , cultivating , ploughing and some drilling whilst still being able to fill in when necessary with carting in the busy periods. Large amount of telehandling experience as i was mainly responsible for the unloading and stacking of several thousand tonnes of fertiliser used throughout the year. PA1 and PA2 tickets held but very limited use of sprayers. Some experience of operating Fendt Katana forager as i was trained up as a backup operater if ever the full time operator was ever unavailable. Experience with the loading of sugarbeet lorries using Volvo L50 loading shovel. Have operated most makes of tractor but mainly Fendt , Claas and case machines but very quick to adapt and learn to new machines.
