Job Description

The herd is milked through a rotary parlour with ACR’s, robotic spray arm and feeders; paddock grazed for as long as the weather dictates (generally February – Nov) and are housed in cubicles during the winter where they are fed block cut silage. Regular grass measuring takes place on a weekly basis. All data is inputted onto software to give a grass wedge.

The herd is split into a spring and an autumn block and all replacements are reared on-farm.

In return for your efforts we offer a highly competitive salary with bonus schemes, regular time off and accommodation free from rent and council tax. The house available is a lovely 3 bed family house on-farm, which is double glazed and has central heating.
