Farm Manager

A fantastic opportunity has arisen to manage a large spring block calving herd of mainly Friesian x Jersey cows in south Cheshire.  We require a very experienced and enthusiastic Farm Manager to manage all aspects of the farm, budgets and staff and maximise the potential of the 800 acre predominantly grass farm.

The herd is milked through a large herringbone parlour; grazed for as long as the weather dictates and are partly housed in cubicles and partly out-wintered during the winter.  Regular grass measuring takes place on a weekly basis.  All data is inputted onto software (AgriNet) to give a grass wedge.

The successful candidate will be an exceptional people manager, have experience managing farms and budgets and someone who leads by example and has very high standards in whatever they do.

In return for your efforts, we offer a highly competitive salary with profit share / contract farming options, regular time off, accommodation free from rent and council tax.  The accommodation available is a lovely modern 3-bed family home on the farm, with central heating and double glazing.
