Farming background

I have grown up on a 4000ha sheep and beef station in Central Otago, NZ. We run over 5000 breeding ewes and 300 beef cattle, we finish all stock on the property as well as on the other smaller finishing block. We use working dogs, 2 wheel motorbikes and side by sides(gator) on a daily use. For the past 2 years I have worked on a 800ha mixed cropping farm(both arable and stock) where I looked after the 2500 breeding ewes and was heavily involved during lambing. I also did work using tractors and tell handlers.

Hobbies

Sport- mainly rugby and travel.
