An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Herdsperson to join our progressive dairy farm in South Devon.
The 300-cow Spring block calved, cross bred herd are milked twice a day in our new 24/ 48 milking parlour. We have also recently invested in a new cow cubicle shed, calf shed and handling facilities.
We're looking for someone who is passionate about dairy farming and seeking to develop their career. You must have attention to detail and be driven to deliver our KPI's of high fertility, maximising grass growth and grass utilisation.
You will be working closely with an Assistant Herdsperson to ensure that our high standards of hygiene and cow health and welfare are maintained. Ideally you will have experience in AI, foot trimming and grazing.
In return we offer a competitive salary and accommodation (a 3 bed detached cottage on farm is available).
The farm is located in the beautiful hamlet of Ludbrook, just 5 minutes from the town of Ivybridge with good local primary and secondary schools. We are also just 10 minutes from the spectacular South Devon coast and 30 minutes from Dartmoor.
