Dairy worker required in England

Peepy Farm, a 450-cow dairy farm at Bywell, Stocksfield, Northumberland, England, is seeking a herdsperson or general farm worker to join its established team.

The farm operates on a split-block calving system, with what the farmer-owners describe as “excellent grazing infrastructure, modern buildings and machinery”.

They say the farm’s focus is to maximise milk production from forage. Cows are milked twice a day through a modern rapid-exit 36-point parlour and are mainly cubicle housed through winter.

A “very competitive salary, great working hours and time off and regular training is offered”, say the herd owners. On-farm family accommodation is also available.

Duties will include regular milking, general livestock husbandry, farm maintenance, grass measuring, calf rearing and some record keeping.

The ideal candidate will have some on-farm experience, but the farm owners say a positive attitude and a willingness to learn is more important.
