2IC/Farm Assistant Couple

Job Description

We are on the lookout for a dynamic couple to join our staff for this upcoming season.
One position to be filled would be a 2IC role and the other of farm assistant or relief milker.
We are a 600 cow farm located 10 minutes North West of Gore. We operate out of a 40 A/S Herringbone shed with ACR’s and a 550 cow Wintering Barn.
The wintering barn enables us to milk all year round which means we calve in August/September as well as February/March.
Because of this we have a large permanent staff of 8 all with differing roles that make this well-oiled machine of a farm run smoothly.
We are family owned and operated and have long time staff with us, so we are wanting a couple that are settled and good at working with people to come and join us.
The roster is 12 on 2 off year round and during calving the roster changes to 11 on 3 off. With plenty of staff we make sure that everyone takes annual holidays and time off when needed.
We also believe that dairy farming isn’t just about the milking so make sure our monthly rosters consist of a balanced milking/farm work ratio.
3 Bedroom house is provided with a log fire for heating.

Applicants for this position should have NZ residency or a valid NZ work visa.
