Organic Split Block Calving in SHROPSHIRE (600 cows)
Set up 5 years ago as an arable (1000 acre) conversion, the farm has been set up to the highest of standards with excellent infrastructure including concrete tracks and water systems.
We are seeking an individual who will continue to progress the farm and ideally who has innovative ideas as well as a practical approach to farming with a clear focus on sustainable dairy systems. We are looking for someone with past experience in a similar role or someone who would like the challenge of progressing into a senior role on a progressive dairy unit.
In particular we are looking for someone who can manage the milking routine, complete grass walks and allocate feed, have excellent stockmanship skills with a focus on herd health and fertility. In addition, you will be involved in young stock work and some calf rearing.
A factsheet is available with clear details of the farm on the LKL Services website www.lklservices.co.uk although in brief the farm carries 350 spring and 250 autumn x bred cows on a simple paddock system (autumns are cubicle housed and fed self-feed silage and parlour cake).
This opportunity offers a high class package with excellent remuneration, house, regular time off and a training programme to support the individual.
