A highly motivated herd manager is sought for the management of 340 Holstein cows within a progressive dairy farming business, five miles north of Carlisle.
The high yielding herd is milked three times a day through a 20:40 herringbone swingover parlour. Housed in an up to date, modern, indoor unit, they calve off-unit, all year round.

Experience in AI is required and foot-trimming experience is preferred. Excellent interpersonal and organisational skills and a strong work ethic are essential.

Assistance with finding a house locally can be given. A competitive salary will be offered to the successful candidate, subject to experience.
