Herd Manager

Winterborne Steepleton, Dorset

An opportunity has arisen to join a successful mixed farming business as the Herd Manager on one of our dairy farms based near Winterbourne Steepleton, near Dorchester in Dorset.

We farm over 1300 acres across two units with a herd of 350 cows milked three times a day through our 28/28 herringbone parlour that was built in 2010. With modern housing (built in 2008) our cows are housed all year with the dry cows and calves spending some time outdoors.

We’re looking for a Herd Manager to run the unit and to lead our dairy team of 3 enthusiastic and dedicated staff. You will need to have a high attention to detail, prefer working with protocols and standard procedures as well as being a friendly and supportive personality.

In return, we will offer a competitive salary, the option of a large 4 bedroomed property with extensive grounds, and a commitment to your training and development.

There are excellent schools within 3 miles of the farm and the pretty village of Winterbourne Steepleton is just 3 miles from Dorchester and approximately 7 miles from the beaches of the South Coast.

If you think you can help us and are ready to take responsibility for the performance of our dairy farm, we’d like to hear from you. A covering letter explaining why we should consider you will enhance your application.
