I began working on a small farm aged 13. This is where my journey into dairying began. As i got older i was allowed to gain more responsibility and by the end I was responsible for all record keeping such as registering calves and treatments. As well as being involved with decisions such as breeding policy.


Currently am working lots, however i enjoy walking and shooting.
