Farming background

Have been working and gaining experience for the past year at my local dairy farm (Langhill), and on my father-in-laws dairy farm in Northern Ireland. Have assisted with milking, feeding, bedding, calving and checks. Have not come from a farming background so not yet qualified but very enthusiastic to gain experience and a quick learner. Particularly suited to calf-rearing roles both dairy and beef.


I often spend my weekends volunteering at my local farm, assisting with the care of herds of around 230 cattle and have hands-on experience milking, feeding, bedding, and calving as well. Most of all I'm very enthusiastic about calf rearing and am always keen to expand my knowledge/gain experience in all aspects of farm work. In my free time I also enjoy creative writing, reading, and outdoor pursuits such as hiking and cycling.
