We require an enthusiastic herdsperson to join a team at Hursley Estate producing milk for M&S. Milking is done through a new 30:60 parlour with ACR’s and ADF. The unit has received considerable investment with new cubicle buildings. We are looking for a team player who will put the cow’s welfare first and primarily undertake milking and husbandry tasks.
The unit has first class cattle handling and foot trimming facilities with an excellent calving and calf rearing set up on automatic rearing machines. Rotational paddock grazing is managed carefully with good TMR nutrition for the period that the cows are housed to ensure top fertility results. This is an opportunity to join a really well managed dairy supplying a premium product to M&S standards. The team has been led by the current herd manager for 12 years and there are great long-term prospects with training and development opportunities.
Foot trimming skills an advantage or a willingness to learn.
A good sized and well-appointed 1 bedroom flat with shared outside space is available on the Estate.
For an informal discussion please ring Trevor Jolley on 07766 912481.
