Farming background

I grew up on a small beef and sheep farm in Devon. I've always had an interest in farming, and have worked in lambing sheds and milking parlours on and off for about 10 years. I've still got a lot to learn, I'm still just a beginner but I'm keen, hard working and a practical and fast learner. Since 2016 I've been working on outback cattle stations- mainly in domestic work, but I'd like to use what I've learnt in Australian cattle yards and bring it to new work in the UK. In October I will be continuing to study a masters in agriculture.

Hobbies
