Personal Summary

I am hardworking, honest and reliable. I love working outdoors and particularly enjoy working with animals and carrying out stock tasks. I find it easy to work with a range of people and I am happy to work on my own and with others. I have two broken in huntaways, two broken in heading dogs and one young huntaway that I am currently breaking in. I am looking to move on to a farm that I can progress my career by taking on more responsibility within the farming industry.
