Senior Herdsperson

We require a senior herdsperson who has experience of looking after large numbers of high yielding dairy cows to join a highly motivated team and share all duties such as milking, feet, fertility, calving, rearing replacements and general husbandry jobs.

The large herd is housed all year round and milked three times per day through a 50pt rotary and all replacements are reared in-house.

The successful candidate will have experience on a similar system and be able to take charge when the owner / manager is away, which includes the management of the cows as well as staff.

They must have extremely high standards with a particular eye for attention to detail. Someone who is enthusiastic and a good communicator as well as a willingness to take responsibility are essential qualities for this role.

In return for your efforts, we offer a highly competitive salary, regular time off (working 1 in 3 weekends) and a lovely 2-bedroom cottage free from rent and council tax.
