Hello my name is Paul, I'm a 46yr old fit & healthy bloke. I alongside my wife & Son's have been farming for close to 14yrs, longest time on one farm 9yrs. Our youngest Son Lucas is doing his Ag ITO courses & would love to see him progress into the industry. I pride myself in my work, I love farming, I love watching the farm progress & the cows strive. I would give your establishment 110% of honesty, reliability, communication & loyalty. I'm definitely not one to sit around & I think out of the box. I'm self taught welder I love to build things, I've built a calf pen/ramp for the bobby truck, race scrapper, wharf for the river on farm, braziers, outdoor furniture, calf hay racks & the list goes on. I'm confident on the tractor & feeding out, two wheeler & quad. We went years grade free, I take pride on the shed hygiene & love watching the milk docket increase with total sent & cell count lowering. I can calf a cow, detect mastitis, treat lame cows. I would love it if I could find work with or near our Son so we can still watch him progress. I along with my wife have taught people we know to milk & they have now moved onto farms & loving the job.
I left this job as was not enjoying being in a factory again, but left when lockdown was over.
