Job Details

Herdsperson – Oxon/Wilts Border
400 Autumn Block Calved H/F Cows 
Ref: TJweb2665

CAN YOU HELP COMBINE HIGH YIELDS AND GRAZED GRASS?
 
A superb opportunity has arisen on our client’s large, mixed farm in Wiltshire for a committed and experienced Herdsperson. Whilst AI and foot trimming skills would be useful, training in these areas can be provided. Enthusiasm, a team mentality, and a desire to succeed are vital. This unit has seen significant recent investment in buildings and grazing platform infrastructure. We can offer excellent facilities which in turn provide superb working conditions & cow welfare and include:

  • 24/48 Waikato with ACR’s
  • Straw bedded cubicles with mattresses 
  • TMR fed and paddock grazed
  • Frontier recording and CIS milk records
  • SenseHub monitoring system
  • Autumn Block calved with yields in excess of 8500ltrs
  • Backing Gate, Auto ID and shedding

This is a superb opportunity for someone with a proven record of hygienic milk production to join this family farming business and work with one of the industry’s top Herd Managers. Grass measuring ensures the grazing season is fully utilised indeed cows can be grazing for 10 months! You will be given the necessary encouragement and support to enable you to have a significant impact in this progressive and committed dairy unit. An appetite for maximising the use of grazed grass will be essential. We can offer an exceptional package - regular and reliable relief, a 3-bed semi-detached house with c/h and d/g free from rent, rates and c/tax and a salary to reflect the importance of the position.

*No overseas applicants without a work visa*
