Job description

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a General Farm Worker (Youngstock) to join our award-winning farm in Crewkerne, Somerset.

Our Farm

We are a family-owned mixed farm, who have been milking and caring for dairy cows for over 90 years. The dairy herd consists of 1,850 milking cows plus replacement heifers, and they are calved all year round, with a team in place overseeing the calves and maternity side of the farm. Our milk is supplied to Arla TSDG, whilst also being an Arla regenerative pilot farm since last Autumn and supporting other pilot farms.

The farm owner has been recognised within the industry by being Farmers Weekly dairy farmer of the year in 2010, RABDF gold cup winner in 2015, Farm Business of the Year at the Food and Farming awards in 2015 and Tesco TSDG Farmer of the Year 2017.

Your role

As a General Farm Worker, you will be responsible for:

– Supporting the youngstock team by carrying out calf rearing tasks.

– Feeding the youngstock when required, on different youngstock units.

– Hauling cattle, transporting them from unit to unit safely.

– Hauling manure.

– Handling youngstock to enable vaccinations and footbaths etc.

– Keeping the yard tidy. Always adhering to health & safety protocols.

– Basic tractor & machinery driving.

A Full UK Driving License is required. A Telehandler license is preferred but not essential.

You

You will be an easy-going person, with a can-do attitude. You will be a self-starter, and motivated to support the units wherever possible. Previous experience with youngstock is preferred, but an eagerness to learn and develop within a forward-thinking and progressive business is just as equally important.

The benefits

We will provide a competitive salary based on your previous experience, regular time off, company pension and a commitment to your training and development. We may have accommodation, depending on your circumstances, however this is not guranteed.

Location

The farm is based in Crewkerne, Somerset with excellent schools, leisure, and shops nearby.
