We have a rare and exciting opportunity for a progressive grazing enthusiast to assist in the running of an 850-cow spring calving unit near Taunton in Somerset. The unit is on one of three contiguous farms under the same management and plans are in place to build another unit on one of the other farms for an autumn calved herd next year. The role will be to integrate into the milking team, and to take a lead in fertility, herd health, feet, grazing management and record keeping. The herd is made up of crossbred cows yielding around 6,500 litres from around a tonne of cake. All replacements are reared on farm. Facilities are excellent to include; 44:88 Millfoss parlour, excellent handling facilities, cubicles with some loose housing and a well thought out infrastructure of tracks and paddocks.
The package on offer will include a three-bedroom house on the unit, regular time off and a salary to match your skills.
We seek someone with a positive “can do” attitude so if you think you have the skills and desire to tackle this important role, please call Henry Hare on 07531 335294.
