I started my sheep dipping business in 1983 after attending Moulton Agricultural College and travelling around the world with the International Agricultural Exchange Association.
My business has increased over the years and I now dip in the region of 100k – 130k sheep per year, across the UK. Since starting my dipping business I have dipped in excess of 2 million sheep. I farm over 1,000 acres of grassland with a flock of 1200 ewe lambs and I also take cattle on tack during the summer.
I am an active member of the NFU and sat on many livestock committees throughout the years. I was Chairman of the British Association of Sheep Contractors for two years and am Vice Chairman of Husbands Bosworth and Theddingworth Sheep Dog Trials and Chairman of their associated annual family horse show.
I also host an annual Charity Sheep Dog Trials at home, run by the Midshires Sheep Dog Trials Association. I am an active member of the National Sheep Association. For many years I have been buying and selling working sheep dogs, finding working dogs for my customers and attending a large number of sheep dog sales.
