We have a very exciting contract vacancy for an experienced and dedicated working herd manager for a well-run unit in a stunning part of North West Devon. 

The unit is home to 500 cows on an all year round calving, high input system. The herd is partially TMR fed with top up through out-of-parlour feeders, and milked twice daily through a 32/32 westphalia parlour fitted with ACR’s, milk meters, clusterflush auto ID, draft and wash.  Reporting directly to and working closely with the owner, you will oversee milkings, performing around 4-5 per week and ensuring that when others are milking that they maintain your high levels of cell count management and mastitis control.   You will also take responsibility for calvings, fertility, feet, herd health and record keeping.  DIY AI and foot trimming would be desirable as would recent experience in a similar role. 

In return we offer regular time off, excellent salary and a very nice, modern 3/4 bedroom house near to the unit free from rent, rates and council tax.
