Farming background

I come from a small farming background in Northamptonshire. We have always had pedigree cattle and sheep, including mine and my brothers flock of Blue Texel sheep. We have shown across the country and have bought and sold at the national breed sales. We decided to disperse the flock when we both started work and college and they helped us to fund buying a car each. I reinvested some of my money into a pedigree Limousin heifer which I purchased at the Gascoines dispersal sale back in October 2018. I have continued her halter training and am hoping to take her to some shows in the summer. Looking forward to getting her in calf later on to see what she can produce. I take part in Young Farmers events locally and enjoy visiting agricultural shows and game fairs. If I am not working, I like to get up to my local market at Thrapston to see what is selling.
