Farm Manager

Reference: 8HR970


Are you the kind of Farm Manager who is:
Always striving for best practice • Focused on what delivers the results
• Looking after the farm and the business for today and all the tomorrows

Our clients operate a substantial family farming operation, comprising four dairy
farms in the Waikato and Bay of Plenty, each one milking 450-500 cows. Their
success in the industry has come through a combination of passion for the industry,
hard work, clear goal setting, and surrounding themselves with the right people.

With a recent purchase of an additional farm at Kaharoa between Rotorua and
Tauranga, they are now looking for a like-minded farming leader to take on the
responsibility of managing this significant asset for them.

The farm comprises 153ha effective and milks c460 cows; it is well set up with
a 36-aside herringbone shed and in-shed meal feed system, Protrack and a
Dosatron dispenser. The dairy unit is operated as a milking platform supported by
a drystock farm.

Leading a team of three, this is a role where your management and leadership skills
will be as important as your technical farming knowledge – which needs to be top
rate. It goes without saying that you’ll have had farm management experience and
you’ll be comfortable working in an environment with a budget, reporting processes
and the requirement to comply with company policies.

This is an exciting role with plenty to offer the right person including:
• the opportunity for career progression, including industry training and
involvement, as well as future Contract Milker or Operations Manager potential
• a fantastic location, surrounded by bush and close to beaches, lakes and handy to both Rotorua and Tauranga
• a large main home, with good garaging.
