Assistant Herd Manager job - Dorset
South West

Our company was established in 2018 to milk 450 crossbred cows OAD on a 100% grass-based system with a contract selling to Arla. In 2021 we expanded and setup a joint venture with Hemsworth Farm LLP on a green field site in the Cranborne Chase AONB. The farm is 1200 acres, ringfenced organic dairy and arable with a progressive agenda for soil improvement and biodiversity enhancement.

There are excellent modern facilities including a brand new 24/48 Waikato parlour with ACRs; new cow tracks and paddock system. Grazing is on 100% herbal leys. The herd currently comprises 270 Viking Red cows, OAD milking. All milking replacements are reared on farm.

The position is ideal for an ambitious person to learn and develop new skills and be part of a progressive regenerative farming business. You need to be able to work on your own initiative as well as being part of a committed team. We are looking for candidates with a positive attitude, a sense of humor and a willingness to learn. You need to be a self-starter and efficient with good time management skills.

The work will include all usual dairy and herd management tasks as well as other general farm duties including fencing and tractor work.

The salary is competitive depending on experience and we have a policy of continuous training and aiming for a good home/work life balance. Accommodation is available on the farm or in the neighbouring village depending on requirement. Start date January/February 2022.
