Farming background

I have worked full time as a Dairy Farm Assistant in New Zealand on a 700 cow farm on the South Island. My role involved a wide variety of tasks and responsibilities from calculating and administering the feed for the cows, milking, administering drugs, identification of illness in the herd, maintaining the farm and more. I also spent 4 months on a UK farm that was predominantly dairy but also had beef stock. My role on this farm was predominantly calf rearing as well as some general assistance on the farm. This involved many different responsibilities including picking up new born calves and recording their data and identification, tube feeding, the administration of drugs and the general feeding and care of young stock from birth to weaning. Lastly I have most recently been working on a large farm in New Zealand where I have had responsibiilities pertaining to both the dairy herd and the calves.


I enjoy travelling, hiking and playing and watching rugby.
