Job Details

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a dedicated working herd manager for an excellent 400- cow unit near Warminster in Wiltshire.  

The AYR calving 350 pedigree cows are milked through a 32-point internal rotary parlour producing a herd average of 9,800 litres, with milk sold on a premium contract. The farm has seen recent investment in new cubicle housing along with modern machinery.  Working alongside the farm owners and heading up the small team, you will undertake the day-to-day management of the herd and the staff.  

You will work closely with the vets, nutritionists, and advisors, leading by example and undertaking your role with a hands-on approach to help drive the herd forwards. Fertility, herd health, milking and vaccinations, alongside daily record keeping and staffing rotas, will all be part of your role.  A regular foot trimmer is currently used; however, interim foot treatments would be expected.  

The successful candidate will have experience in a similar role, a proven track record of performance and will be an excellent communicator, keen to develop and motivate the team through their approach. 

In return for your efforts, we are offering a highly competitive salary with bonus scheme, regular time off and accommodation free from rent, council tax and water rates.

For an informal discussion please contact Adrian Edwards on 07824 480196.
