Farming background

I am currently studying for a BSc Honours Degree in Agriculture with Mechanisation at Harper Adams University, Shropshire. I previously attended Hartpury Agricultural College where I chose to undertake a 10 month work placement with Velcourt, 8 months of which were spent at a large arable estate in Wiltshire. I was involved in the 2018 harvest at Ascott Estate in Buckinghamshire, a large Rothschild-family owned arable enterprise where I carried out general harvest tasks such as corn carting and telehandler operations. I am a practical minded hard worker and an ambitious person. I live on a large dairy farm where I help with many aspects of the family business such as carrying out both machinery and livestock tasks. I am interested in mechanisation and have a good understanding and confidence when maintaining engines and machinery. I have a telehandler qualification which was used for the operation of JCB and Claas machinery throughout my placement and harvest period. I have attended health and safety training and awareness courses with Velcourt. Maize Harvesting / Contracting. An 8 month work placement including the harvest on an Estate – Velcourt, my primary roles at Fonthill were grain carting, telehander work and rolling with RTK GPS. I have experience using JCB and Claas telehandlers, Fendt tractors, Modern John Deere tractors and Case IH tractors. Zero grazer operation Machinery maintenance.
