Description

We are hiring a new beef stockman due to our current stockman relocating to Scotland after 6 years with us.

We are a mixed farm of 1500 acres just South of Salisbury. We run a herd of 130 Aberdeen Angus suckler cows, taking the offspring through to finishing which go to Dovecote Park, local butchers, or through our farm shop. We also have a lambing flock of exlanas, and store lamb finishing enterprise. Both the cattle and sheep are integrated into our arable system, with the calving herd and sheep outwintered on stubble turnips, cover crops and cereals.

The primary role would be the day to day running of the herd, responsible for animal husbandry, grazing management and ration management. Whilst the cattle are housed we are feeding through a mixer wagon. At busy times there will be machinery work, e.g. silage making, harvest, and the tasks will depend on experience, e.g. baling.

We perform all operations in house with the exception of muck spreading & wrapping.

We have a 3 bedroom farm cottage available with the job
