We require a dedicated and professional herd manager on a 200 cow unit between Welshpool and Shrewsbury. The farm is enjoying continued investment in both infrastructure and machinery, resulting in excellent facilities and working environment for both staff and cows, as well as milk going to ARLA as an ARLA owner. The herd currently achieves around 9,500 l’s, is calved AYR (with an autumn bias) and milked through a 20:20 parlour fitted with all modern equipment to aid the staff in their work. The role would involve day-day management of the team and cows, milking, proactive cow health and welfare, foot trimming, general stock tasks and relief TMR feeding working alongside the herdsman to drive the herd forward. You will have experience in a similar role, dedication, attention to detail and be able to bring new ideas for the benefit of the herd and owner. Ability to follow and maintain protocols is also essential for this role. In return we offer a competitive salary with bonus schemes, regular time off and a very nice 3-4 bedroom house with large south facing garden and stunning views within a quarter of a mile of the farm.
