Herdsperson

Following a career move we have a contract vacancy for an experienced herdsperson to share day-to-day responsibility for the day-to-day running of this QMMS milk recorded 9500ltr herd. 

This is an Autumn calving herd that is predominantly housed in modern cubicle sheds.  Excellent facilities provide superb working conditions and include a modern 50-point Boumatic External Rotary parlour with feeding, ACR and ADF, 3-way shedding gate and automatic foot bath, computer records and modern handling facilities. 

We require a self-motivated dairy enthusiast to work alongside the existing herdsman, and other staff, who can produce milk to the highest standards and take an active role in the forward planning of this progressive dairy operation. 

Responsibilities will include milking, cow health and welfare, fertility, and records.  Experience of AI would be an advantage; however, training can be arranged.

We can offer a generous package that will include a good salary, regular time off and a 3-bedroom semi-detached house with oil fired Aga and garden free from rent and council tax.  Located just outside Bodmin, the farm allows for easy access to all main facilities, good schools, and the beach!
