Herdsperson

We have an excellent opportunity for an experienced herdsperson to join the team on a 500-cow unit situated approximately four miles from Swindon and six miles from Marlborough.

The farm has expanded considerably over recent years and now carries over five hundred high yielding Fr/Hol cows, milked 3x daily and averaging close to twelve thousand litres per cow.  Significant investment has been made with a fully automated De Laval 44 point Rotary parlour, sand bedded cubicles and youngstock housing resulting in a modern and pleasant working environment for cows and staff.  Whilst your role will be to milk once per day, you will be competent in fresh cow management, AI and have foot trimming skills. 

Ongoing training will be offered to the right candidate if required.  We offer a very good package to include first class working conditions together with regular time off and a pleasant 3 bed c/h, d/g semi-detached house situated approximately 1.5 miles from the farm in the village of Baydon, which benefits from a very good primary school and village shop.
