Senior Herdsperson

SENIOR HERDSPERSON OPPORTUNITY

Looking for career progression?

Due to an internal promotion we have an opening for a senior herdsperson to join our existing team on a modern Spring block calving farm, located on the edge of the picturesque village of Ashby St Ledgers near Daventry, Northamptonshire.

The Bramley Farm team manage a 270ha platform looking after 600 NZ Friesian cross-bred cows and replacements. We aim to maximise the use of grazed grass in the diet and operate a simple system. The infrastructure includes a Waikato 44/88 herringbone parlour with excellent winter housing and grazing infrastructure. It is planned to install an auto-drafting gate and cow manager before calving this spring to help manage the mating period.

The successful candidate will have a proven track record of maintaining excellent cow health & welfare, milk quality, record keeping and enjoy managing grass. AI and foot trimming skills would be advantageous. Responsibility for the farm in the absence of the herd manager will mean you would need to be organised and a good communicator who excels in a team environment.

Pilkington Farms is a progressive grass based dairy farming business, that is dedicated to operating a profitable and sustainable farming business through the efficient utilisation of forage and the maintenance of a fertile and healthy herd. We are dedicated to growing and developing people through training and providing opportunities for career progression, therefore a positive attitude and a willingness to learn is essential in this role.

A 3 bedroom house will be available within a short distance of the farm alongside a competitive remuneration package.

For more information please contact Matt Pilkington on 07816060068 or alternatively apply by emailing your CV and covering letter to office@pilkingtonfarmsltd.com
