CV Headline

My name is Chris and I'm currently running the family farm just outside of Haverhill but sadly we are not big enough and due to costs I'm having to look into closing down farm and getting in a contractor. 

PA qualifications for spraying including pA6 and I have my Pa4 qualifications also. My tele handler ticket has lapsed. I also have done my quad bike and chainsaw courses and have a level 2 qualification in health and safety which I did with the NFU. Ppoisons certificate for buying and putting down bait for rodents. Computer wise I currently use muddy boots green light and because of where I am I can do most other jobs on the computer. I went to collage but didn't do agriculture, as decided to do a enviormental course with business studies included, as saw that was the way farming was going. Currently I run Case equipment including combine and have done all Operations regarding growing combinable crops. I also have experience spraying sugar beet while contracting myself out. Due to working for myself I work long hours.
