Job Description

Stock Manager – Bay of Plenty

The Farm

  • 239ha (210ha eff) dry stock finishing farm located at McLarens Falls, Lower Kaimai
  • 900 MA Ewes, 150 R1 & R2 dairy grazers and 80-90 R2 Steers
  • Well subdivided and set up for ease of management
  • Drive-in 30 hour week position

 What you need to know

  • With good subdivision dog work is limited but ideally you have one or more dogs to help you out from time to time.
  • Stock policy is a simple one with ewes mated to a terminal sire and winter trade cattle purchased as R2’s to minimise handling required.
  • The farm is a 10min drive from The Crossing, 15mins to Tauranga and 25mins to Mount Maunganui so is well located if you are living in town.
  • A number of benefits available including meat and hunting.

 Your background

  • With the owner working off-farm you will be required to carry out day-to-day tasks and on your own. This will require you to have the ability and motivation to work autonomously.
  • You will have three years or more experience working on a sheep and beef farm.
  • Experience in pasture, sheep and cattle management including management of an animal health plan.
  • An ability to complete typical repairs and maintenance tasks and have an understanding of water systems.
  • You will have strong organisation skills, planning ability and record keeping.
  • Have an open communication style.
