Reference no: 8HR1451

Location: Waiuku, New Zealand

Start Date: 01 June 2022

 Exciting 50/50 Sharemilker Opportunity!

  • Awhitu Peninsula, Waiuku, South Auckland
  • 540 cows - Split calving
  • Approx 397kgMS per cow
  • New Pulsation and Cup Removers to be installed Feb'22

You already know that 50/50 sharemilking roles are like hens teeth…and this one has it all…the ultimate location, overlooking the Manukau Harbour, farm owners who have experience working with sharemilkers in the past, great housing infrastructure, and a nicely set up farm including a 40-bail internal rotary with in-shed feeding. 

We could probably stop writing now because the above says it all…but we’ll keep going because it just keeps getting better.

This 220ha effective farm is operated as a split calving farm and is currently producing 206,000 kgMS average on a system comprising maize silage, PKE and conserved pasture.  A summer crop and nitrogen at 150 units/ha complete the inputs. 

Our clients’ experience shows that the successful operation of this farm needs three full time team members which includes the Sharemilker. 

It’s a given that you will be financially sound and experienced farm operator as there is room for improvement in production, so a track record of converting grass to milk through best practice pasture management and animal husbandry is critical.  Equally importantly is your ‘fit’ with the farm owners.  A great working relationship with open communication is essential; success is measured in the smooth running of the farm and the co-operation between all parties.

What’s on offer is the opportunity for a business-to-business relationship in an environment that is set up for everyone to be successful.  All of this in a fantastic rural community with primary and secondary schooling.
