Job Description

An exciting opportunity has come up to be part of a new sheep milking venture, located in the sweet spot of Rotorangi, Te Awamutu. This will ideally suit a couple as there is a role for a 2nd person as a part-time helper.

You will be responsible for the day to day management of the sheep milking farm with all the usual things this would entail - pasture management, animal husbandry, record keeping, effluent management and staff management. You will be supported by a farm assistant, lamb rearers and the farm owner is active in the operation as well.

The farm is generally flat and is being converted to be suitable for a sheep milking farm. There will be 650 sheep for the first year of operation increasing to 1000 there on after.

To be part of this exciting new venture, we need someone who is focused, a strong leader and passionate about animal health. You will be an integral part of this operation, therefore we require endless motivation, enthusiasm and energy. Prior experience in farming roles is essential, sheep milking experience would be fabulous but not a pre-requisite. If you have a solid dairy, milking sheep or milking goat farming background you are proud of and love creating and targets - then lets talk.

Please apply with your CV including recent referees as soon as possible.
