Dear Potential Employer,
I have worked for many years on my family’s farm and have also been employed by local farmers. My experience includes farm work in the dairy, honey bee and sheep industries. Over the past 6 years, I have developed strong automobile, trailer, tractor, fork lift and telehandler operating skills. I am confident in my skills related to cutting hay, baling, and silage harvesting, spreading manure, disking, cultivating and working with livestock. I enjoy learning to use new machinery and do so quickly.
My experience working for Canadian National Railway involves maintenance of machinery and railways, as well as the related construction work. Additionally, I have practice making important decision in stressful situations, often while in very remote areas. I work well in both team and independent settings.
This opportunity appeals to me as I can expand my skills with agricultural equipment and my knowledge of animal husbandry and crops. Finally, I look forward to contributing to the farm enterprise.
I hold an EU passport, and may therefore be employed in EU. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you would like any further information. I would very much appreciate the opportunity to discuss a position with you via Skype. I would be glad to send you a PDF copy of my cover letter and resume, if you would prefer that.
