Finishing my visa farm work at the end of March and looking for something to keep me going until closer to June time until the snow season starts! Very hard working (2 days off in 3 months record!) A very quick learner and very keen to learn new things too! My farm work for visa included irrigation pipe moving in Lucerne hay and loader experience loading bales onto/off trucks. Learnt about some sheep work but didn't work that closely with them.
'He is coming up to third month here with us, the end of his 88 days. He has been a general farm labourer, hasn’t done much machinery, but a lot of the heavy lifting stuff. He has been really good. He had never worked on a farm before, you can see that in some things although he is not shying away from any work I have given him. He has done everything well. He works hard – has a great work which that has really impressed me. He is pleasant to have around and reliable & punctual. He is always keen for work and has impressed me with the tasks he has got through. I haven’t put him in much machinery, so I can’t vouch for him in that respect although he has been really good for what we have needed him for. I have been really happy to have Wilson work here. (Michael) Having Wilson work for us has been a very positive experience. He has been doing a variety of work – a lot of moving pipes for irrigation, fencing, all-rounder. Physical farm tasks; mixed bag. Very obliging young man. Everyone here speaks very highly of him. (Sally)'
I'm Jonathon Campbell and I'm currently living in Tasmania and I am interested in becoming a farmhand or jackaroo within your cooperation. I would like to gain experience within the cropping and livestock industry. I haven’t had much experience working on a farm or large scale operation but am eager to have a go and put in the hard work to learn new skills and have knowledge that I can use in the future and pass on to others. During my time working with my father on our sheep and beef property, I have done lamb-marking and woolpressing which isn’t an easy job. In my opinion, I have learnt the meaning ‘hard work’ from this. In 2014, I completed a dairy pre-employment training course at Alanvale Tafe Tasmania which teaches us: basic fencing skills, quad bike safety, OHS in agriculture, pasture management, animal welfare and diseases that can affect milk production and quality which will help me. I would really like to learn to ride a horse from a basic level through to an advanced rider and the same goes to riding a motorbike. I would like to become to skilled and work hard to become a skillful employee. Through a variety of jobs I have learnt about safely working with and around machinery. My work experience, which I believe will assist me in this position, includes working on my father’s farm; greens keeper's assistant at Barnbougle; along with other positions which have provided me with experience, knowledge, the ability to work in a team and unsupervised, and further developed an already an excellent work ethic. I am also willing to undertake my certificate in agriculture while working for you if its possible.I am a committed, hard working, energetic young gentleman. If you were to employ me I can promise you will not have any regrets. I am also prepared to move if successful. Enclosed is my resume for your review. Thank you for considering me for this position and am looking forward to hearing from you.
Thanks Jonathon Campbell

'He worked for us for about 12 months as a 1st year apprentice. Started doing basic jobs like learning to load trucks and help out safely. We do a lot of furniture fit outs and he progressed into learning how to build those. He was good with the tools and he always looked after them. He took an interest in everything and as an apprentice was willing learn. Some apprentices don't actively look for things to do when quiet but Jonathan did. He was happy to sweep, clean and even clean toilets. He would also let me know if we were running low on hand towels or paper. He communicated well even though he had a slight speech impediment he took that on board and worked with it. He didn't seemed embarrassed of it even when the others would sometimes reel him in.'

'Worked for 12 - 14 months. Duties & responsibilities varied – casual; manual labour, collecting samples, field day labels – grain production Usually on time, trusted to work unsupervised. Good work ethic.'
'Josie came to us from a polo stable where she was a stable hand/ strapper. She could ride a horse well enough but still needs work on her 2 wheel motor bike skills. She had to learn also how to work cattle but she was very keen and mastered that well enough. I could not fault her work ethic as she was always looking for something to do. I would recommend her.'
We are a couple from Estonia. I'm Keven 24 years old, Estonian farmer. I have a lot of experiences with agriculture machinery, harvesters, tractors, forage harvesters etc. My partner Triin is 22 years old and she has many experiences with farm animals cows, dairy etc. We are looking for a great farm where we can do long hours. We'd be very happy if we get a chance to work a long time in your team. At the moment we are working in Victoria.
Best of regards
'Madhu has worked for us on and off over about 2 years. Duties include picking fruit, stacking bis, sorting. He works unsupervised with no problems. He is punctual and reliable. Pretty good communication skills. He has never had any workers work under his charge. I have no reservations in recommending him.'
'Brooke helped me out on and off about two years ago. We have a horse adjustment business in the northern suburbs of Perth in WA. General animal care and hygiene and property maintenance were here main duties. She also had to deal with a lot of our clients, who need a lot of reassurance surrounding the care of their animals. Considering her age at the time, she was great, most her age are awful. Brooke has a brain, she is a good worker, she gets in and gets the job done. I would ask her to do something and I knew I didn’t have to worry, it would be done well, she understood the importance of doing a job once and well. She is sharp, quite shy which made it a bit difficult to have a conversation at the beginning but she definitely got better with time. She is at the high end of good workers. I would have no dramas in recommending her, she definitely has a brain. You could put her anywhere, she would cope with remote work, she really isn’t afraid of getting her hands dirty. '

'Absolute first rate - Kevin did everything asked of him professionally and cheerfully, was extremely competent'
I have grown up on a small beef cattle property north of Canberra and have always had a strong interest in Agriculture. Throughout high school I worked casually on a nearby wool and fat lamb property developing a strong interest in the sheep sector, I have worked as a rouseabout on other properties and am currently completing a certificate IV in wool classing via distance.
Because of my interest in sheep and cattle I decided to study Vet Science at university. I will be in second year in 2019 and upon graduation I would like to become a mixed/large animal vet in a rural area.
Coming from a grazing area I have had limited exposure to cropping. Aside from small amounts of cultivation and fodder conservation undertaken at home. For this reason I am very interest to learn about the day to day operations of a cropping operation.

' Josh was here casually about 12 months ago, for 2 or 3 years prior to that. He helped out with general kind of stuff, helping in the shed at shearing, fencing, spraying – those kind of things. His work ethic was ok, he worked alongside me most of the time so as long as I explained what needed to be done, he was pretty good. I had no worries with him being on time, he was always early and always turned up. He’ll be fine wherever he is, I have no hesitations in recommending him for any employment'

'Collin worked for me about four years ago, for 14-16 months. He covered all general farm duties, and was responsible for everything that happened in the milking shed. His work ethic was alright, he was never late and never complained. Communication wasn’t great, we were operating with mobile phones when he was with us and he didn’t have one which made it hard, once we started using radios it became much easier. I had no issues with Collin at all, I would have him back again if he was looking for work. '
