We require a dedicated and professional herdsperson to share responsibility with the existing herdsman on a 200 cow unit between Welshpool and Shrewsbury. The farm is enjoying continued investment in both infrastructure and machinery, resulting in excellent facilities and working environment for both staff and cows.

The herd currently achieves around 9,500 l’s, is mainly late summer/autumn calved and milked through a 20:20 parlour fitted with all modern equipment to aid the herdsperson in their work. The role would involve milking, calf rearing, proactive cow health and welfare, foot trimming and general stock tasks working alongside the owner and other herdsman.

You will have experience in a similar role, dedication, attention to
detail and be able to bring new ideas for the benefit of the herd and owner. Ability to devise and adhere to strict protocols is also essential for this role. In return we offer a competitive salary with bonus schemes, regular time off and a very nice recently renovated 3-bedroom house, with large south facing garden and stunning views within a quarter of a mile of the farm.
