Large Scale Contract Milking Position - 1650 cows - NEW!
Do you have the skills to lead a great team? Are you looking for that next
step in the industry? Our clients are looking for someone to replace their
current contract milker who is moving on to herd ownership.
The 660ha effective milking platform is located near Whangaehu,
20 kilometres South of Whanganui City Centre. The farm consists of
200 ha highly productive fertile river flats with the balance 460 ha of
terraced and rolling hills.
The farm is supported by a large property located in Waverley which the
farm owner manages. All replacement heifers and most of the herd is
wintered off on this property.
There is great infrastructure on farm including the 70-bail rotary with
in-shed feeding and ACR’s. There are high quality calf rearing facilities
and sheds, a new effluent storage system and plenty of water for stock.
There are five houses available for use by the farming team including a
four-bedroom homestead for the contract milker.
The farm typically milks 1650 cows in three mobs on a pasture-based
system and is forecast to produce 580,000 kg MS this season. A mob of
350 – 400 cows is milked once a day on the farthest hill blocks.
Options for education are abundant in the local rural community, with
Whanganui close by.
With a proposed start date of 1st June 2021 we are looking for an
enthusiastic, competent contract milker to run this farm like they own it.
Previous experience as a contract milker or with large scale management
is a must have.
Send your cv to Melissa on firstname.lastname@example.org by December 4th.
