Job Description

The herd is very well managed by the herd manager who has been running this herd for over ten years now.  Cows are milked through a modern 20:40 Westphalia parlour, calve in a block through September and October and are housed through the winter in cubicles when they are fed a mixture of self-fed and easy feed grass and maize silage with a cake top up in parlour.  Turnout is early and a paddock system of grazing is used with grass measured weekly.

An excellent package is on offer for the successful applicant to include regular time off, generous salary and a very good, recently updated 3-bedroom bungalow in a quiet rural setting with stunning views about a mile from the farm and no more than a mile and a half from the market town of Holsworthy, which will be provided free from rent and council tax.

For an informal discussion about this position please call Henry Hare on 07531 335294.
