Job for Experienced Stockperson on the <=>Rutland/ Leicestershire border<=>

Farm TypeBeef

We are looking for an experienced, passionate and honest Stockperson who can develop our new pedigree and commercial herd of Beef Shorthorn, Aberdeen Angus and South Devon cattle. The herd consists of top pedigree animals, including sterling champion bulls and cows and excellent breeding lines. The farm also includes a flock of Kerry Hill and Lleyn ewes and the Stockperson’s role will also cover this.

This is a unique and long term opportunity to work on a new family farm and to be involved in developing a new, large, greenfield site, as well as influence the future strategy for the farm.

The applicant must be driven, with a good attention to detail and willing to be innovative. You must have tractor operating experience, a great understanding of cattle, diseases and health schemes and a positive attitude towards learning.

The commercial animals that do not meet the highest pedigree standards will be put through our own farm shop, so must still be reared to an excellent standard.

This is a key role within a progressive, hands-on family, friendly business that is also involved in horticulture and retail with a garden centre and plant nursery.

We are building a brand new, attractive 3 bedroom family house for the stockman in the beautiful countryside on the Rutland Leicestershire border and, until this is ready, help will be provided to find local accommodation in the short term. We also offer an attractive salary, discounts within the garden centre and a rewarding opportunity to really make a difference.
