Mappowder, Dorset – Ref: SOweb2409

We have a contract vacancy for an enthusiastic experienced herdsperson or man/wife team (one person part-time) to work alongside the farmer on a 350-cow herd of organic cows in North Dorset.

The farm is part of a mixed farming enterprise that is family managed and operated, running three organic dairy herds on Arla contracts.  This herd is milked in a new 20-40 Fullwood parlour with ACR’s, all new handling facilities and updated housing.

The herd is summer/autumn calving with maximum production from grazing when conditions allow, and a grass based TMR while housed.  Cubicle housing is available with sawdust beds over mattresses.

The appointed person who will have a ‘can do’ attitude with at least 5 years’ experience with cows and is expected to be a team player, easy going and capable of working alone as required.

Help is available at all times, especially peaks in workload.  AI and foot trimming are an advantage, but clean milk production is a priority.

A really nice, detached bungalow in the village is supplied alongside a competitive salary.
