Herdsperson-250 cows-Block Calving-Scottish Borders-ILweb1861, Scottish Borders
We require an experienced and dedicated herdsperson to join the team on a 250 cow block calving unit near Kelso in the stunning Borders region of Scotland.
The role would entail all manner of herdsmanship including milkings, herd health work, foot trimming when required and general stock tasks. The successful candidate will have experience in a similar role, be cow focused, have good communication skills and be a good team player.
The farm has an excellent retention record - current herdsperson leaving after 27 years. The herd calves in the spring and is both grazed and housed in loose straw sheds. In terms of fertility, the farm uses bulls and natural services but undertakes regular fertility checks and vet visits during breeding time.
In return for your efforts we offer a highly competitive salary with regular time off and accommodation options to suit your needs plus the chance to work on simple system enabling complete focus on the cow.
