A fantastic opportunity has arisen to work within an enthusiastic team milking 350 mainly Friesian x Holstein cows in the picturesque county of Leicestershire. We require a very enthusiastic and versatile herdsperson to help run the farm and maximise the amount of milk obtained from grazed grass.
The herd is milked through a 24:48 parlour with ACR’s and feeders; paddock grazed for as long as the weather dictates (generally February – Nov) and are housed in cubicles during the winter where they are fed a semi TMR. Regular grass measuring takes place on a weekly basis. All data is inputted onto software to give a grass wedge.
The herd is split into a spring and an autumn block and all replacements are reared on-farm.
The successful candidate will be a very enthusiastic person who has previous experience on dairy farms and has very high standards in whatever they do. They must also be able to think for themselves and be highly motivated.
In return for your efforts we offer a highly competitive salary with bonus schemes, regular time off and accommodation free from rent and council tax. The house available is a lovely 3 bed family house on-farm, which is double glazed and has central heating.
