Description

We are looking for an enthusiastic and experienced full time general farm worker/relief herdsperson on our family run arable, dairy and beef farm in Wiltshire.

The main role of the position will be to do the relief milking at our Shrewton unit and general farm work on non-milking days. The Shrewton unit milks between 220 and 240 cows through a 24 point parlour. The cows are milked twice a day and are grazed at every possible opportunity throughout the year.

The role will consist of 4 milking days every 3 weeks plus covering any holiday our main herdsman takes. 2 of the 4 regular milking days will be a weekend.

The general farm work will consist mainly of feeding and bedding livestock as well as a wide range of other jobs. It is likely the right candidate will also be asked to help at the busiest arable times of the year (silage making, Harvest) with some tractor driving.

 

The ideal candidate:


  • High animal welfare standards and a strong attention to detail when it comes to animal hygiene and general parlour cleanliness

  • AI and hoof trimming certification is preferable, but we are willing to provide training to the right candidate if they are willing to learn

  • A full UK driving licence is essential

 

Salary will be negotiable depending on experience.

Accommodation isnt currently available but there is an opportunity for accommodation in the future.

Job can start as soon as possible.
