General Farm Worker/ Tractor Driver: job in <-->Dorset<--> on dairy farm

Farm TypeArable, Dairy, Beef, Sheep

We require a general farm worker/tractor driver on our 400 acre family run dairy farm in Dorset.  We have a pedigree Holstein herd of 180 cows, plus 200 followers.  We also have about 100 acres of arable and a small flock of sheep.  You would be joining our happy team with a view to helping out across all areas, but especially to cover our busy tractor driver's duties.  We need someone who is willing to do everything from yard scraping to feeding with the mixer wagon, bedding-up to slurry tanking and competent and calm handling livestock.  As well as general field work and routine maintenance.  We are not looking for someone to help wth milking, but an interest in the cows would be a bonus, as we regularly enter herd competitions and have in fact won the best herd in the South West Holstein Club for the past 4 years.
