Job Details


A fantastic opportunity has arisen to join a small enthusiastic team milking 300 mainly Friesian x Holstein cows in the picturesque county of Leicestershire.

We require a very enthusiastic and versatile assistant to help run the farm and maximise the amount of milk obtained from grazed grass. 

The herd is milked through a brand-new 24:48 Herringbone parlour with ACR’s, feeders and a circular backing gate; paddock grazed for as long as the weather dictates (generally February – Nov) and are housed in a brand-new cubicle shed 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 a late spring 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. Foot trimming and AI is preferable for this role, but not essential. The successful candidate will be responsible for looking after the farm during holiday periods and during their weekend working.

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-bedroom cottage, next to the farm, which is double glazed and has central heating.

For an informal discussion please contact Rob Stephenson on 07557 920255.
