Farming background

Lived on a Angus & Hereford stud bull farm through childhood with my parents, worked as a farm handy man for the local farmers, ranging from stock work i.e., drenching weighing treatment of lame and mastitis cows, seeding, fencing, crouching, milking, finding and fixing water leaks. In 2013 I went to West Australia for the harvest and seeding, and also spent time in the Kimberley’s bull catching and riding in the rodeos. Since then i have settled on Dairy farms where recently i have been 2ic on a 800 cow 260Ha property with a 50 bail internal rotary shed, I had 4 staff under me that I organized work for and had to complete their work rosters weekly. And most recently I was 3ic on a 500 cow 180Ha property with a 34 a side herringbone shed.


Hunting, fishing, camping, diving, tramping, and would like to get into sight seeing as i will be in a new country. I also don't mind a cold one after a good days work
