Description


We are a 250 cow dairy farm looking for an enthusiastic and reliable person to assist with milking, calving, vet visits, bedding down, etc.  Our cows are Brown Swiss and Holsteins and are quiet, friendly and used to being handled sympathetically.  Sexed dairy semen is used and British Blue used to produce beef calves.  All calves are reared.  High yielders are housed all year round on sand cubicles and low yielders go out to graze in the summer months.  Calves are reared in hutches.  We have done some showing in the past with the Swiss and this is something we would hope to resume in the future.  We would happily provide training opportunities in relevant areas to the right candidate if required.  A good sense of humour and a responsible work ethic would be appreciated.
