an animal life
I have a passionate interest in animals and spend most of my days (and nights) surrounded by them.
I have worked in the livestock industry for most of the last 40 years. Mostly with pigs, but I have also worked with laying hens, broilers and turkeys, both intensive and free range. I have worked in a small slaughterhouse and have also been on the killing floor of Malton Bacon Factory, one of the largest meat processing plants in the UK.
I attended both Hampden Hall, and Bishop Burton colleges of agriculture in the UK, gaining a Diploma in Agricultural Business Studies and an HNC in Pig Business Management.
I live with my pets, which include several dogs, chickens and a cow.
