We have a new contract vacancy for a Herdsperson to join a team of 3 on this long established organic herd and help to produce milk to the highest standards. This NMR recorded 6500ltr herd of pedigree British Friesians calve in 2 tight blocks (200 spring, 100 autumn) and are milked through a 16/32 DeLaval H/B parlour with ACR’s, ADF and In-parlour feeders. Cows are paddock grazed from early spring through till late autumn. During the winter grass, clover and whole crop silages are fed with a forage box and the cows are housed on sand cubicles with mattresses. The unit benefits from Interherd records, auto ID with shedding gate, loose housed transition yards and a backing gate.
The successful candidate does not need organic experience. However, a desire to succeed and a practical approach to all dairy tasks is a must. A 3-bedroom house with central heating and wood burning stove and large garden is available on the unit free from rent, rates and c/tax.
