    Assistant Manager

Reference no: 8HR1397

Salary: Negotiable
Location: Matangi, New Zealand
Duration: Permanent - Full time
Start Date: ASAP


Dairy Embryo Birthing Unit - Matangi


If your cows were cars, how would you describe them?


If your answer was an Audi (or maybe a BMW) where the focus is on reliable and innovative performance gains then we could have the dairy farming job just for you…


As the Audi is to Germany, so the dairy cow is to New Zealand… and at Bellevue Enterprises this means literally having cows pregnant with potential.


The team at Bellevue is passionate about the contribution breeding makes to increasing the productivity of the dairy farming system and this role at their Embryo Birthing Unit between Cambridge and Hamilton has, at its heart, a focus on great reproduction, calving and rearing.


At 120ha and milking 330 cows, this farm is about as far away from large herd, factory processes as you can get in dairy farming.  There’s a 28as herringbone dairy so you’re up close and personal with the cows, there are excellent calf rearing facilities and there’s a highly professional team with a strong technical focus.


And they need an Assistant Manager who is beyond the ordinary to join this great team who is committed to, literally, caring for the cows!


But don’t get this role wrong, as a specialist breeding unit cow performance is critical.  People won’t invest in the science of embryo transfer unless the science is worth it and this farm is at the pointy end of making sure animal performance is well measured and recorded.  So optimum production, pasture and feed management remain the order of the day-to-day work.  But alongside that, this role will immerse you in the finer points of calving down and caring for high genetic value animals.


And with a great location within easy commute of Cambridge, Hamilton and Te Awamutu, plenty of schooling options and negotiable accommodation arrangements to suit you, there’s a lot to like about this role for your family too.
