Re-advertised due to unfortunate circumstances, we have a contract vacancy for an exceptional, forward thinking herdsperson to support the farm manager and take an increasing role in the running of an organic grazing unit in stunning countryside in the very heart of Devon.
The role will involve taking control in the manager’s absence and having a direct involvement in all aspects of the daily running of the unit, this will incorporate milking, breeding, calving, yard work, grassland management, herd health and record keeping.
The herd is made up of 280 crossbred cows predominately spring calved with a small autumn block. Baby calves are reared on farm then moved to a contract rearer at weaning. Milking is through a modern 20/40 swing over parlour allied to good handling and cubicle housing.
In return we offer a salary commensurate with the position, career progression, good accommodation options, either on farm or a short drive away, and regular time off.
If you are a grazing enthusiast wishing to gain experience in an established, well run business, please call Henry Hare on 07531 335294.
