Permanent part-time worker - We offer a clean, tidy shed and farm, competitive remuneration and calm, friendly cows.
My partner and I contract milk 380 cows through a 36 aside herringbone shed, 5 minutes from Tapanui, 3 minutes from Heriot. We run an all grass system, striving to have happy healthy cows producing top quality milk with minimal inputs.
We are looking for someone to work alongside us 3 days a week from August 1st to cover time off. We have a strong focus on health and safety, as well as pasture management and animal welfare.
The successful applicant must pass a drug test, be reliable, quiet with stock, have an attention to detail and a can-do attitude. Key responsibilities will include milking, assisting with calf rearing, and feeding of different cow groups.
There is a 3 bedroom house available with the position, the primary and secondary school bus stops at the gate. There are also plenty of dairy farms in the area who may require relief workers.
