Job Description

Morrison Farming is a dynamic, family farming business, consisting of an intensive finishing property and a hill-country breeding property, both located north of Marton in the Rangitikei.

The successful applicant will largely be based on our 5,500 stock unit finishing property, Fern Flats, 8km from Marton. But the right applicant will also be involved on our nearby 8,600 stock unit hill country property, Mangara.

Performance recording is a key focus for Morrison Farming, as well as growing stock on a wide variety of forage.

The position is tailored toward someone with a few years on-farm experience and some level of tertiary training through an ITO or Agricultural College along.

This role involves primarily stock work, stock management and general farm maintenance as required. The Stock Manager/2IC will report to the Business Manager/Owner.

The successful applicants will ideally display:

  • Experience with sheep and cattle, including performance recording.
  • Experience with general farm maintenance and repairs.
  • Pasture management expertise.
  • Progressive and positive attitude.
  • Team-player.
  • Some leadership skills and experience.
  • Attention to detail and recording.
  • A good working dog is desirable.
  • Punctuality, honesty, reliability and adherence to the Morrison Farming Health & Safety Policy.
  • A readiness to work additional hours when necessary.

We offer a structured Monday to Friday working week, with one weekend on a month.

Morrison Farming supports ongoing training opportunities. A competitive salary package will be negotiated based on experience.

A full New Zealand Driver’s Licence is required.

Single accommodation is available, or alternative options can be considered/negotiated.

Morrison Farming is a smoke free workplace.
