When things was quiet with the tractor end of things I would of worked with either cattle or sheep. There was about 30/40 cattle on the farm breeds mainly such as Charolais or limousins. My job with the cattle would be feeding in winter and cleaning out the pens and regular dosing then come summer just moving them from field to field. There also was flock of sheep on the farm for a period of time breeds such as Suffolk and Texels. These were only kept on farm for 2/3 years as didn’t really work out for farmer so he sold them but my jobs way them would been pretty much same as cattle in winter feeding the sheep and cleaning out there pens and clipping feet sometimes too. Then in summer moving from field to field.
