General Farm Worker required for 400 cow Dairy Unit near Gloucester

A fantastic opportunity has arisen for a General Farm Worker to join a team on a progressive dairy unit near Gloucester.  The role is varied and responsibilities will cover all areas of the dairy herd, feeding, milking, scraping and general assistance with the herd and youngstock. 

The farm is a 400 cow herd with a rolling yield of 12,000 litres per cow, milked three times a day through a 28/28 herringbone parlour.  The herd supplies milk on a premium contract and must therefore meet the highest welfare and management standards in the country. 

A telehandler licence is required but could be obtained in post if necessary.  

You must be able to maintain high standards, follow instructions but also be able to think for yourself on day to day topics. 

We expect you to have some experience of working with livestock, milking and feeding. However, we are prepared to train you as required.

Accommodation is available with this position.
