In this week's Junior Farmers we meet David a 13 year old with a bright future in sheep.

Name: David McKeown

Location: Ballymena Broughshane

When did you start farming? . I started farming at 9 years of age.

What sort of farming are you at? I live beside farmers who have a lot of sheep and I work for them all the time I work with sheep

What is your favourite thing about farming? Lambing time I work non-stop. I help bring in lambs 3 times a week to weight them. I love silage time and lambing because you are always on your toes and you are generally working flat out.

Have you always wanted to be a farmer/Do you have a future as a farmer? I have always wanted to be a farmer from a young age.

Do you want to study Agriculture in third level? I would like to yes.

What are your Future plans in farming? I hope to have some livestock of my own.
