Dairy Herdsperson job near <->Ludlow, Shropshire<->

Farm TypeDairy

After three years one of our team is moving to pastures new, and we are looking for a motivated person to join our team at Cawley Farms Dairy (find us on Facebook) milking 500 Autumn block calving cows on an extended grazing system in a new (2015) 2 person Waikato 40/80 herringbone parlour with ACR's and in parlour feeding. We have class leading facilities further to a redevelopment of the farm in 2015, with a new cubicle shed for Winter housing and an entirely new track and water system.  We are seeking someone who can work well as part of the expanding team, has a keen interest in dairy cows, excellent attention to detail, a full UK driving licence and previous experience of work in dairying. We would welcome applications from experienced herds persons/couples seeking a new challenge, as we are able to tailor responsibilities and renumeration accordingly. A lack of large herd, grazing or block calving experience would not be a barrier for the right person, as training in these specific areas could be offered.  Main duties will include milking (mainly once per day in the afternoons, two/three mornings per week), and the day to day running of the farm (including young stock).  We have a flexible rota, regular time off, encourage discussion group attendance, an interest in facilitating progression, and a strong desire to ensure that, whilst this is a dairy herds persons role, the rota and facilities mean that there is more to the job than simply milking. Accommodation can be made available if required.
