A contract vacancy has arisen for an enthusiastic, ambitious person to complete a well-staffed team.

We seek a reliable herdsperson with a solid dairy background looking to progress their career by assisting with the day-to-day routine and management of a 350-cow herd on a recognised tight autumn block calving, forage based, system.  The herd is cubicle housed, with easy-feed grass/maize silage fed as self-feed and in mangers, with concentrates fed in the 8-year-old 25:50 DTL parlour. 

There is the opportunity for the successful applicant to join a large, well known dairy farming family business, focussing on fertility, quality milk production from forage/grazing, and have an input with the youngstock, with the added benefit of support from a depth of experience within this committed farming operation. 

The unit has undergone significant investment over recent years including new cow accommodation.  In addition to the excellent facilities and a first-class work environment, the job also offers an attractive 2-bedroom cottage in excellent decorative order, a short drive from the unit, free from council tax, rent and rates along with a very good income and regular time off.

If you can pride yourself on stockmanship, would enjoy a diverse role and being part of a dedicated team and want to develop your career within a progressive, secure dairy business to a high standard; please contact James Picot on 07802 596633 for more details.
