Assistant Unit Manager
Due to recent expansion and our previous assistant manager progressing onto our new farm, we are looking for a new assistant manager to join our team on our successful autumn calving farm near Eccleshall.
Brookhouse farm compromises of 450 cows plus followers milked through a simple swing over parlour with a well laid out paddock system. The herd mainly grass fed throughout the summer and cubicle housed on a simple self-feed silage system through the winter.
This is a hands on role, and the successful candidate will be required to support the farm manager to deliver successful results on the farm, this will include grassland management, ensure key targets are met and work is completed to a high standard.
Daily duties include assisting the small team with the day to day management of the herd, including milking, foot trimming, breeding, and medicine treatments.
The role would suit someone who is passionate about dairy farming, has an interest in grassland management and a keen eye for stock. The ability to work as part of a team is essential, along with a positive attitude and willingness to learn.
This is a great opportunity for someone who is looking to take their next steps towards a farm manager’s position within an enthusiastic, modern dairy farming business.
