Hello i'm Nadine

We are seeking a fit / enthusiastic couple to join our team and help on our busy 900 cow farm, located 20 minutes from Invercargill on the Gorge Road-Invercargill highway.

Duties will include: milking cows that have calved, rearing calves and general farm duties including shifting cows on crop.

Start times vary at the start of the season - anywhere from 8am onwards depending upon how may cows calve.

Early season roster is: 6 days on - 1 day 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.

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. Alot of patience is requred during this training time as it is a very hands on position - Some dairy farm experience would be an advantage but not necessary.  On the job training will be given.

Transport would definitely be an advantage but also not necessary.

You must be elible to work in NZ with a current working visa, IRD number and NZ bank account number
