Looking For Variety? - General Farm Worker/Tractor Driver - 225 Cows Lancashire
– Ref: ILweb1666
We require an experienced general farm worker to join the team on a modern and progressive 225 cow unit between Preston and Garstang, Lancashire.
The role would offer great variety and the tasks varied and so we are looking for candidates who are both cow minded and machinery minded. Your tasks would involve feeding the herd with the TMR - able to make accurate rations according to the diet and deliver to the cows a presentable ration - bedding and general stock husbandry tasks, aiding the herdsman with herd health plus basic tractor work and farm maintenance. Experience in welding and fencing would be advantageous as would experience milking although this would be a very occasional task.
You will have a hard working but flexible approach, be professional in all you undertake, have the ability to turn your hand to a variety of tasks and be as comfortable amongst cows as you are on the tractor and machinery, treating both with pride and taking care of them in equal measure and reporting any issues you may find. Reliability, good communication and an easy going nature are the traits we seek as a priority.
The farm is very well equipped with modern machinery and infrastructure.
In return for your efforts you will receive a competitive salary with bonus schemes, regular time off and the opportunity to work at a highly respected farming business.
