Job Description

Good facilities provide excellent working conditions. The cows are housed in recently erected sheds on sand bedded cubicles with mattresses and wide passages. There has also been recent investment in silage clamps, machinery and equipment.  The cows are required to make good use of grazing but are also fed a TMR when needed. Good grazing management to include regular plate metering will be an essential part of the role as an extensive program of track laying and water have been undertaken.  Paddock and stabling block available.
