Job Details

We require a self-motivated and experienced herdsperson to help run all elements of a modern and progressive dairy farm near Shrewsbury.

•    Helping the manager with the day-day running of the high yielding herd
•    Milking
•    Foot trimming (experience essential)
•    Calf and youngstock work
•    Herd health & fertility
•    Record keeping

The farm has a recently installed HB parlour with ACRs, milk meters, auto shedding gate and backing gate to milk the 350 high yielding Pedigree Holstein cows 2 times / day. Modern cow housing and new machinery make this a very efficient farm with excellent working conditions.

This is a varied role which involves hoof trimming, calf and youngstock feeding, with some milking when necessary.

The successful candidate must have previous experience on a similar farm, be able to think for themselves, motivate and challenge staff and work alongside others in this successful business.
In return we offer a competitive salary with bonus schemes, a lovely four-bed house, which is on the youngstock unit 8 miles from the farm, and free from rent and council tax. This is an opportunity to be a key part in a successful and progressive business.
