600 COWS – Leicestershire
We require a self-motivated and accomplished herd manager to run all elements of a modern and progressive dairy farm in south Leicestershire.
Key responsibilities will include:
- Managing the day-day running of the autumn calving herd
- Staff management
- Herd health & fertility
- Grazing management
- Record keeping
The farm has a recently installed rotary parlour with ACRs, milk meters, auto shedding gate and backing gate, to milk the 600 Friesen Holstein cows. Modern cow housing and new machinery make this a very efficient farm with excellent working conditions.
The successful candidate must have previous experience on a similar farm, be able to think for themselves, motivate and challenge staff and work alongside the owner running this successful business.
In return we offer a competitive salary with bonus schemes, lovely on-farm 4-bedroom family accommodation, with garden, that is close to all local amenities, free from rent and council tax and the opportunity to be a key part in a successful and progressive business.
