Head Herdsperson

We have a contract vacancy for an experienced Herdsperson, on a 720-acre family farm near Street in Somerset.  This NMR Recorded 425-cow AYR calving Holstein herd is yielding 10,000 litres on 2 x milking via a 40 x 40 De-Laval herringbone parlour, with Auto ID, feeders and shedding gate, providing milk for a Sainsbury’s contract. 

While housed cows are in mattress cubicles bedded with straw and fed a complete TMR, all young-stock are retained and reared as replacements.

The appointed person will be expected to milk within a 3-person team, be involved in fortnightly vet routines, be computer literate and keep records fully up to date.

An ability to trim feet and do AI would be advantageous.

A modern 5-year-old, 3-bedroom semi-detached house, just off farm, is on offer with a competitive salary.
