An exciting contract vacancy has arisen for a highly accomplished and experienced couple to take day-to-day care of an all-year-round calving herd in Mid Dorset. 

The farm forms one of two similar sized units run by the owners as well as young stock units.  The herd of 450 calves year-round and are milked through a 24:24 Baumatic parlour.  Cows are cubicle housed and grazed through the season and fed a partial TMR in winter with top up in parlour.   You will both come with a proven track record of running a herd of this size. 

The role will involve all aspects of caring for the herd with responsibility for milking, calving, fertility, being proactive with herd health, record keeping, and calf rearing.  Yard work and feeding is done by others and the foot trimmer comes weekly. 

The farm is in a remote yet accessible location only a 15-minute drive from Yeovil or Sherborne.  The rewards for this very important role in a stunning part of the southwest will include a generous salary, regular time off and a very nice new 4-bedroom house on site with oil fired central heating, garage and garden which will be provided free from rent and rates. 

For an informal discussion please call Henry Hare on 07531 335294.
