Arable Operator and Stockperson Vacancy on a 1600ac mixed farm in South Oxfordshire
Full time general farm work involving all forms of tractor work and beef and sheep production, on a 1600ac mixed family farm in South Oxfordshire. The job can be tailored for the candidate. Both vacancies would have crossover but each with their different main responsibilities.
We run a range of modern equipment including GPS and carry out nearly all operations in house.
The arable operator position would revolve around the tractor work of the 1000ac of combinable crops and the maize and grass establishment, working with modern machinery and GPS, spraying, fertilising and drilling also providing cover combining and bailing. Candidates would need to have previous experience and be organised, as there would be a level of record keeping and maintenance expected with the role.
The stockperson role would mainly be revolving round the 250 head suckler cow herd and 400 ewe breeding flock. We will be calving 200 cows in the spring and the candidate would need to have previous experience calving and preferably lambing. Looking after fresh calves and cow health will be part of the job with potential for TMR work. We turn all of the spring calvers outside and there would be stock checking and feeding throughout the summer.
Both roles would be working closely with a small team, with all employees doing most jobs. We carry out a large straw operation during the summer carting and stacking bales. Candidates would be enthusiastic and have experience in large animal handling. Telehandler ticket and loading shovel experience would be an advantage.
TMR experience would be an advantage, we are looking for someone who can work well individually at a given task but also work well in a team. The arable operator position would require PA1 & PA2 and have previous experience using GPS.
