Job Description

Kolmar Dairies is a 1,500 cow farm in Mid Canterbury, just outside of Methven. We are a system 5, family run farm looking for an experienced lead calf rearer to join our team.

We calve 4 times each year, so there are calves to feed basically all year round. We are committed to zero bobby, rearing our replacements and selling most beef calves at 4 days old.

We are looking for a lead calf rearer to take charge of our calves on a day to day basis with support from our dairy team. The role is full time year round on a 6:2 roster with dairy and young stock work available between calvings.

We are looking for someone with at least 3 years calf rearing experience, who has excellent communication and recording skills. You will also need to pass a pre employment drug test.

Start date is very flexible (between now and Christmas) and shared accommodation may be available.
