Assistant Herdsperson

Are you looking for a secure job on an expanding progressive dairy unit?! Do you want a mixed role?! Then look no further!!

We are looking for a motivated assistant herdsperson that can work closely with the herd manager to help progress this unit.  The farm has expanded over recent years with the development of additional cubicle and young stock housing with a shift in breeding policy to focus on cross breeding and utilising milk from grazed grass.  A new 25:50 parlour with ACRs and auto ID has recently been constructed and is now fully in use.  The cows are under transition from being purebred Holsteins are the progeny is now first or second cross with Norwegian Red or Fleckvieh genetics.

Whilst the role has variety we are particularly looking for somebody who is a keen stockperson and who will support the manager with all herd issues, milking routine and grassland management. 

Ideally the candidate will have experience in a similar role and have a passion for cows.

In return we offer a competitive salary with bonus schemes, a 3-bedroom house on the farm and regular time off.
