Arable/Stock Person - Job on farm in <->Renfrewshire, Scotland<->

Farm TypeSheep, Beef, Arable

Arable/stock person required for a busy arable, beef and sheep farm in Renfrewshire near Glasgow Airport.

We grow 400 acres of grain and so the job involves ploughing, working ground, spraying, applying fertiliser and operating our combine.  PA1 and PA2 certificates are required and PA4S for slug pellets would be an advantage too.

We also finish around 250 beef cattle each year on a TMR diet and so knowledge of working with cattle, operating a straw bedder and a diet feeder is required.

We have a small flock of around 90 ewes and buy in around 300 lambs each year to finish, so a small amount of working with sheep would be expected too.

Our equipment is all modern with Massey Ferguson tractors and Claas harvesting machinery. We have a JCB Loadall and so a telehandler certificate is required too.

The successful applicant must be self motivated and able to work under their own initiative to a high standard.

We take pride in the appearance of our farm and our stock and the successful applicant would be expected to do the same.
