Job Details

Herd Manager
1200 Cows – Somerset – Ref: TJweb2666

We have an exciting vacancy for an all-round dairy professional to take the lead role with the day-to-day management of this all-year-round calving, milk recorded herd, of H/F cows currently producing over 11000ltrs milking 3x. If you are a dairy enthusiast and would like to be involved with this progressive unit, we can offer the necessary encouragement and support to enable you to have a significant impact on this committed dairy business. 

This modern unit benefits from superb facilities and includes a 60-point Fullwood rotary parlour, ACR’s, backing gate, auto ID with drafting and heatime. The cows are housed on sand bedded cubicles and are fed a TMR backed up with automated parlour feeding. Experience with computerised records and an understanding of the latest technology would be an advantage.  

However, attention to detail, a desire to succeed and good interpersonal / leadership skills are essential. A dedicated milking / yard team provide in house cover for the x3 shifts per day and herdspeople provide a skillset for the stockwork. If you have experience of large herd management, or feel you are ready for the challenge, we would love to hear from you.

A 3-bedroom house with double glazing and central heating is available free from rent, rates, and council tax together with regular time off and a salary to reflect the importance of the position.
