Experienced herdsperson £25-£30K dependent on experience. Package includes family house with garden and council bills paid. Regular time off and pension scheme. Good local primary and secondary schools in the area with a bus stop in the village for the secondary schools.
We are a progressive family farm that runs a mixed operation of dairy and arable. Milking 300 Holsteins, calving June-November but we are tightening the block each year. We are currently investing in a new 200 bed sand cubicle shed to be built in spring 2021. With a large arable operation as well we run a range of good machinery, mainly John Deere tractors. 18/36 herringbone parlour with ACR, ADF, teat scrubbers and backing gate. Cows grazed in the spring and housed and fed TMR once they move into the transition group.
We are looking for someone to fill a senior position, taking on responsibility for milking/outside feeding and scraping and herd health management. For most of the year we have 1 person outside and 2 people in the parlour to ensure best standards are maintained. Attention to detail and good communication skills are required.
AI and Foot-trimming skills preferred but not essential.
We are located in Dunsby, just north of Bourne in South Lincolnshire. To start asap but can be flexible.
Package can be tailored a little to suit the right candidate. Please email CV or ring to discuss any more details.
