Head Herdsperson and Assistant

We have new contract vacancy for an experienced head herdsperson and an assistant to take the day-to-day control from March/April 2021 of a 250 Ayrshire cow herd expanding to 350 cows, currently autumn calving but will change to AYR.

Milking is initially in a very decent tandem parlour, with a new herringbone parlour being built in the summer, to go along with improved housing from straw yards to cubicles.

The appointed head herdsperson will need to be very experienced in managing all day-to- day operations, whilst maintaining very high standards on this organic unit, and be able to manage operations during the upgrade, looking to increase both cow numbers and yield.

A competitive package to go along with a suitable house on farm is on offer.
