Payment: $16.50 and accomodation Location: Mokoreta, Southland
Region: Southland/Fiordland Experience: Limited Experience Necessary

We are looking for someone with some farm experience to help on our 350 cow dairy farm, that Steve runs pretty much single handed.

The job will be approximately 40 hours per week 5 on, 2 off, at minimum wage plus accomodation (making wage equivalent to $18). However this can be negotiated if you show yourself to be competent.

You will need to be able to offer some skills/ experience in farming, although we don't mind what, as the position can offer various work depending on your ability. For example helping with calf rearing, milking, fetching in cows for milking, setting break fences, weed spraying, stock work, tractor driving- such as cultivation, spraying, mowing, feeding out, muck spreading, baleage wrapping.

You will mostly be expected to ride a 2 wheel motorbike on farm, so you can learn this if you can't already!

You will be able to work alone when necessary, be able to get up in the morning (usually 6-6.30), have a pleasant personality, be able to speak English well and be legal to work in New Zealand.

Accomodation is provided. Own transport is essential. The farm is located in Mokoreta- 45 mins from Curio Bay in the Catlins, 45 mins from Gore and 1 hr from Invercargill.

Send some information about yourself and your experience, and when you could start. :-)
