    Herd Manager

Reference no: 8HR1426
Posted: 1 Oct 2021
Salary: Negotiable
Location: Te Awamutu, New Zealand
Duration: Permanent, Full Time
Start Date: Negotiable

If you’re looking to take a step up the ladder in your dairy-farming career, what are the things that are important to you?

  • Handy location? 
  • Opportunity for growth and development?
  • Well set up farm?
  • Competitive salary?
  • Work/life balance?
  • Great team?

This one ticks all the boxes!! 

Our client has a 220ha dairy farm, milking 700 cows and is located in the Te Kawa district in the heart of the Waikato.  

They are currently looking for a motivated and enthusiastic herd manager to join their team.  Our ideal candidate will have a good understanding of the where what and why goes on, so we’re looking for someone with:

  • a minimum of two years NZ dairy farming experience;
  • Level 3 industry qualifications or equivalent;
  • demonstrated pasture management and animal husbandry skills;
  • a great attitude and strong communication skills. 

Regardless of your background, the right attitude is critical – if you are team orientated, hard working and keen to learn, then this could be what you are looking for.  On farm training is a given and off-farm training is encouraged and supported.

This is an exciting role that covers all aspects of farming within a great company, with a team of people who enjoy a laugh.  The farm is only 10 minutes from Te Awamutu and 10 minutes from Otorohanga, so is might suit as a drive in position. Alternatively, a recently renovated cottage (two – three bedroom) is available if required.
