We have contract vacancy for an experienced herdsperson on a brand-new state of the art robotic unit in Somerset, 2 miles south of Glastonbury.

This exceptionally well managed family unit has 250 pedigree Holsteins yielding 10,500 litres from a very young herd.  A full grass based TMR is fed all year round while cows are housed in mattress cubicles with sawdust bedding.   An auto-robot scraper is used along with the 4 New Lely astronaut milking units.

The appointed person will be working alongside the farmer on a day-to-day basis and be willing to undertake all aspects of herd management duties.

This position is for an experienced mature herdsperson who is calm and steady with cows, and looking for a non-milking role, to include all aspects of herd management; the robot system experience is not essential.

A good mobile home (a 3-bed detached house can be made available for good candidate), to be supplied along with a competitive package.
