We require an enthusiastic and versatile individual to take on some responsibility of the day-to-day running of a progressive and modern dairy farm.

Key responsibilities of the role will be milking, TMR feeding, young stock and calves, vet routines and record keeping, designing and implementing procedures and protocols, management of staff, meeting with owners and discussing issues and development potential.

You will be working alongside a very skilled and experienced herd manager who has an excellent track record of helping individuals learn and develop their careers. Ideally, we require someone with a minimum of 3 years’ experience.  However, we will consider those with less experience.

The farm is a family run dairy unit with first class infrastructure including a further cubicle building that will be available for use in October.  This is a cracking herd of cows which achieve over 10,000 litres milked twice a day.  The cows are fed a full TMR diet.  The cows are in superb condition with regular foot trimming and mobility scoring taking place.

In return for your efforts, we offer a highly competitive salary with bonus schemes, regular time off and a nice 2/3 bedroom house off the farm free from rent and council tax.
