We have an excellent new opportunity for a Herd Manager to take on the day-to-day management of the Artis herd of Pedigree Guernsey’s.  Wood Farm is managed organically and situated in a rural location on the edge of the village of Wroughton in North Wiltshire.

The closed herd of 200 milking cows and followers are housed in a modern set-up which has a fully automated Fullwood 20/20 parlour within parlour feeders, Auto Seg and excellent handling facilities.  A semi TMR ration is fed via a GEA Mullerup automated feed system. There is good track access to grazing paddocks.  All milk produced goes to the farm’s long-established processing facility. 

The person required will ideally have a proven track record in managing a herd organically, a strong empathy with regard to animal welfare requirements is a must, this together with an aptitude for making best use of modern technology. 

The manager’s position requires the appointed person to be the first point of call for the dairy unit at all times other than at holiday periods. 

The position is not a full-time milking position, allowing time for associated management duties. 

The excellent remuneration package includes a 280-day contract together with suitable family accommodation provided, close to the unit and with all other amenities including very good schools within a short distance of the farm.
