We have an exciting opportunity, for someone looking to expand their knowledge and progress their career, on a brand-new spring calving unit in mid-Devon.  

The role will be to work alongside the owner in all aspects of the running of the unit which will incorporate milking, yard work, grassland management, silage feeding, calf rearing, herd health and record keeping. 

The herd is made up of 250 mainly crossbred cows and currently calve both autumn and spring, but this will gradually move to all spring calving.   All replacements are reared on farm.   There is a new 24:48 parlour, the handling and housing are still under construction as is the infrastructure of tracks and paddocks. 

We require a proactive self-starter excited at the prospect of being involved in this new unit right from the start. 

In return we offer a salary commensurate with the position and regular time off.  A really lovely 2-bedroom house, a short walk from the unit, will become available, free from rent and council tax.  Recent experience is desirable, but a positive attitude is essential.
