Hello i'm Nadine

 

We are seeking a fit /  enthusiastic person to help on our busy 800 cow farm, located 20 minutes from Invercargill

Duties will include: milking the cows, weed control and other general farm duties.

Start time each day:  5:30am and afternoon shift beginning at  2:30pm - We will be moving to a 16hr milking: start times will be 5:00am & 7pm with 11:00am start following day

Present season roster: 6 days on - 2 days off.  Depending upon work load, this is flexible - we are here to help.

Shared accommodation is available - large 3 bedroom house - $75.00 per week per room - power is proportioned.

At present we have a canadian boy - Michel, Chiara from Germany - Michel is due to leave us on the 12th May so we need to get someone familiar with the day to day running of the farm as soon as possible.

If you love working with animals - are a hard worker, enjoy the outdoors, enthusiastic, good communication skills and are keen to learn - then we would love for you to join our friendly team of 4

This is a physical job so must have an average level of fitness and be of average height as the younger cows require good upper body strength and a good arm reach to cup - Some dairy farm experience would be an advantage but not necessary.

Transport would definitely be an advantage but not necessary

You must be elible to work in NZ with a current working visa
