Competent team member required to join a progressive and expanding 600-acre mixed family farm in Monmouthshire.

The farm has an aligned contract milking 200 high yielding pedigree Holstein Friesians on 4 Lely robots, with a view to expansion over the coming 6-12mo. We calve all year round, cows are grazed in the summer and we breed all our own replacements. We have a small suckler herd and these, alongside the other beef youngstock, are all finished off farm. The farm also has a small flock of pedigree Suffolks.

400 acres of arable land is farmed on a rotational basis of maize, wheat, barley and short-term leys. Except for maize harvesting, all associated tractor work is done in-house.
