We have new contract vacancy for an enthusiastic head herdsperson, or couple to join a family farming operation near Newport, to operate alongside the owner.
This 200-cow flying herd of Hol x Fr cows yielding 8,000 litres for their own in-house milk processing operation, so needs to produce milk of the highest quality.
For info see www.meadfarmfoods.co.uk
The herd currently is milked in a Gascoigne 10 x 20 parlour with ACR’s and in parlour feeding, and in the process of installing a fully robotic milking system.
In the winter months cows are housed in deep sand cubicles with an easy feed TMR.
The position would ideally suit an experienced herdsperson wishing to maintain a full herd management role without the task of milking, and to maintain and improve the herd performance especially herd health.
A 3-bedroom house off farm and a competitive salary is on offer, to accompany a good work-life balance once robots are up and running.
