    Charlie Beaty is a third generation farmer from Warwickshire where she and her family farm cattle, sheep and crops. A standard day for Charlie starts with checking the cattle and sheep, arguably the most important job of the day. She checks for any animals that may be sick, injured or even stuck so that we can get them sorted out as soon as possible.
