Full Time

A fantastic opportunity has arisen to become part of a successful dairy business in North Yorkshire. The farm has had significant investment over the years resulting in a large and efficient dairy unit and now requires a Herd Manager to take it to the next level and help progress the business further. The herd is housed all year round and milked three times a day through a 60-point rotary parlour.

The successful candidate will already have management experience of high yielding cows on a large scale. They will need to be a flexible, self-motivated and enthusiastic individual who has extremely high standards with a particular eye for attention to detail, able to think for themselves and in time be able to run all elements of a large, modern dairy herd. 
Someone who is a good decision maker, great with staff and willing to be dedicated to animal health and welfare as well as a good communicator and manager are essential qualities for this role.

In return for your efforts, we offer a highly competitive salary with bonus schemes, regular time off and a 3-bed house within walking distance of the farm, set in a rural location and free from rent and council tax.
