Job Details

We have a contract vacancy for an enthusiastic person to work alongside our Herd Manager on a progressive family-owned mixed farm, situated on the edge of the North Wessex Downs.  This Split-block calving herd of H/F cows are producing over 11,000 litres on a Selkley Vale Cadbury contract.  

Well maintained facilities include a 18/36 Westfalia parlour with ADF, ACR’s, auto ID & shedding which is capable of milking over 100 cows per hour. A good work and life balance is facilitated by outside relief and partial 3x milking, with late lactation cows grazing & milked 2x a day.  With a focus on maximising milk from home-grown forage, currently achieving over 4500 litres, and the herd is cared for to the highest standards. 

Key responsibilities include milking, general husbandry & helping with the day to day running of the unit.   Calf rearing is done in purpose-built accommodation using a computerised milk feeder and whole milk and experience calving cows will also be an integral part of this role.

On-going training and support will be provided, although the ideal candidate will already be a team player, with a passion for cows and good stockmanship skills. 

A brand new purpose built log cabin finished to an extremely high standard with 2 double bedrooms and a log burner is available on the unit free from rent and council tax, together with 95 days off, regular relief and generous salary.
