Herdsperson

Ludbrook, Devon
Full-time


An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Herdsperson to join our progressive dairy farm in Ludbrook, Devon.

The 300-cow Spring block calved, cross bred herd are milked twice a day in our new 24/ 48 milking parlour. We have also recently invested in a new cow cubicle shed, calf shed and handling facilities.

We’re looking for someone who is passionate about dairy farming. You must have great attention to detail and be driven in order to meet our KPI’s of high fertility, maximising grass growth and grass utilisation.

You will be working closely with an Assistant Herdsperson to ensure that our high standards of hygiene and cow health and welfare are maintained. Ideally you will have experience in AI, foot trimming and grazing.

In return we offer a competitive salary, and accommodation (a 3 bed detached cottached on farm is available). The farm is located in the beautiful hamlet of Ludbrook and is close to the coast and Dartmoor. It also benefits from having good local primary and secondary schools.
