|The Role||We looking for a person to look after the milking of the herd and the calf rearing and the day to day tasks on the farm. The farmer is not so worried about the machinery side of things as he can do that himself or use contractors.
The focus of the person needs to be on the herd,the parlour and the paddocks.
|The Applicant||Must have the experience to excel the role. As there will be frequent absences of the client from the farm it is imperative that anybody applying for the job is comfortable with and capable of performing all the typical day to day operations on the farm without the constant presence and direction of the owner. However the client has said that he is open to providing training to a person who demonstrates the potential to develop into the role so a person with a really proactive outlook, good attitude and strong work ethic may also be considered.|
|Accommodation||Will be provided in a good quality mobile home on the farm.|
