Herdsperson
North Cornwall – Ref: HHweb2484

Do you love North Cornwall? Do you love the wild Atlantic coastline? With above average time off to enjoy these delights, we have an exciting vacancy for an experienced and dedicated herdsperson to take a leading role caring for 250 Holstein Friesians near Bude in North Cornwall. 

This dedicated dairy farm, with stunning coastal views and minutes from fantastic sandy beaches, runs to 400 acres and supports the dairy herd and young stock.

A simple system is adopted with cows calved year-round, milked through a 14:28 Fullwood parlour and housed in cubicles. Winter feeding is bunker fed silage using a grab with both out of parlour and in parlour feeders, cows are extensively grazed for much of the year.

The role will involve milking, calving, AI, foot trimming, mastitis control, herd health, grazing management and record keeping. We require a herdsperson who can demonstrate recent experience in a similar role and who can look to take the herd forward. 

In return, an excellent package is on offer to include regular time off, a very comfortable four-bedroom house, with sea views, which will be free from rent and council tax and a salary commensurate with the position.
