I have experience ordering supplies and providing general maintenance on the machinery and equipment in order to keep them functioning properly. I have excellent verbal and writing skills with the ability to receive and convey information in a clear and concise manner. I also have a very calm and easy-going personality with the ability to get along well with others and to deal with the stressful times in a professional manner.
I have experience working with and managing herds of cattle. I have the skills to monitor and coordinate the herd, schedule a time for the milking process and to make sure all sanitation procedures are followed before and after using the machinery according to the Grade A Standards of the Public Milk Ordinance and the manufactures requirements.
I am very observant and know how to recognize signs of illness or when an animal is in distress. I can adjust the environment to help keep the cows comfortable and take steps to promote a healthy herd that includes making sure they are fed properly.
