An excellent opportunity has arisen for an accomplished head herdsperson to take day-to-day control of a progressive and increasingly well invested unit located between Shepton Mallet and Frome in Somerset. 

The 285-cow herd is cubicle housed, TMR fed with paddock grazing in season, and milked through a well maintained 30/30 Fullwood parlour.   The herd is transitioning to autumn block from AYR with replacements being reared ‘in house’ with an increased focus on age at 1st calving and heifer genetics.

The role will focus on the dairy with milking, herd health & welfare and record keeping being the key aspects.  Reporting directly to the active farmer, you will be able to demonstrate that you are a team player with a ‘can do’ attitude and have experience in a similar role.  Alongside the farm owner and other members of the team an opportunity to work directly with breeding and nutrition specialists is encouraged.

In return we offer a highly competitive salary, regular training and scheduled time off. Cottage accommodation is provided on farm.  

For more details and an informal chat about this important position please call Henry Hare on 07531 335294.
