Due to expansion and the continued success of our progressive pasture based dairy farming business based near Marlbourough, Wiltshire, we now have an exciting opportunity for an ambitious Young Stock/Calf Rearer to join our enthusiastic dairy team.
We farm 2770 acres across 3 dairy herds with 220 and 300 autumn calving and 270 spring calving along with rearing our own young stock and full arable operation to support our award winning dairy enterprises.
Based from one of our dairy enterprises, you will oversee the development and welfare of all our young stock across our three dairy units. You'll be responsible for regular calf feeding on one of our units whilst also ensuring the weighing and de-horning is managed effectively across all units.
During quieter times of year, you'll be supporting our dairy teams with relief milking, stock hygiene and general farm work.
You'll have a track record of working with young stock on a dairy farm and looking to take more responsibility for the rearing of dairy cattle on a progressive farm. You'll have a caring nature with a high attention to detail and be keen to grow your career on an farm led by owners who are fully commited to your development within the team.
In return, we'll offer you a competitve salary based on experience, regular time off and 28 days holiday. We'll also invest in your training and development to continue the progress of your farming career.
We believe in the health and well-being of our staff and organise regular team meetings and social events to help foster team spirit and a sense of belonging amongst our staff.
Suitable accomodation will be provided on or near the farm which is based in the beautiful Wiltshire countryside with schools and all local ameneties close by.
If you have a passion for dairy farming and are keen to grow your skills and knowledge within a supportive environment, we'd like to hear from you.
Applications with a CV and cover note telling us why you'd like to join us are preferred.
