Denhay Farms are looking for an experienced full-time milker to provide relief for three of our 200 cow herds near Bridport. The job would involve milking twice a day, scraping, bedding cubicles and other yard work. A minimum of 3 years milking experience is required as these are all single person milking units. Applicants must be computer literate and experience of Interherd (or other parlour recording systems) would be an advantage but not essential. Applicants would need to have a flexible approach to days worked each week as this role includes holiday cover as well as covering regular days off for the herdsmen. Overall this would average out to 4.5 days per week over a year and would include working every other weekend. The benefits include a pension and 25 days holiday a year.
