Here's your opportunity to help manage the cows and make sure they’re well looked after.  That means growing some good grass for them to feed on, milking and taking care of their general welfare.  They're valuable team members and we look after them.  Speaking of team members, you’ll be working with a few of the two legged kind too.  So you’ll need to be a team player and get along with folk.

Then there’s the environment.  We do things right here.  So each farm has a plan and that’s the starting point.  From there we make more improvements and focus on sustainable farming practices so we can be good custodians of the land.  

We’ve some machinery and general farm maintenance that you’ll need to look after.  Increasingly, technology is playing a part in farming and you’ll be exposed to that too.  You’ll also be exposed to some admin and paperwork.  It’s an important part of making sure we run a smooth operation.  

We’ve got a track record of supporting personal growth and development.  And we have a goal of seeing our team members progress through to farm ownership.  So it goes without saying that we offer some great training opportunities, both on and off the farm.  

You’ll have some experience with cows.  You’ll be the type that likes to roll your sleeves up, get stuck in, challenge yourself and think differently.  The type that’s smart, inquisitive and engaged.  You’ll be an active person, energetic and approach work with a sense of fun and a real ‘can-do’ attitude.

Above all else, you’ll be passionate.  We’re going to make some changes to Farming and you’ll be part of it.  

This could be your first, or next step, to a long and prosperous career in farming and a future as a Farm Owner.
