Dairy Farm Work - Awesome Farm And Awesome Staff!

Location: Oamaru
Region: Otago/Queenstown/Wanaka
Experience: Experience Necessary
Contact: 0276887725

Great opportunity to mix work with travel!  Our dairy farm milks 500 cows through a 40 aside herringbone shed.  We have a really lovely team of 3 full time staff, including a Farm Manager, and the owners live on farm as well.  Accommodation is a warm 3 bedroom cottage, fully furnished, and shared with 1 or 2 other staff.  Our farm is situated near Georgetown, around 20 minutes drive from Oamaru township and beaches.  We are 3 hours from Queenstown; 2 hours from Aoraki, Mt Cook; 2 hours from Dunedin, and less than an hour from the Waitaki Lakes district - so plenty of places to visit on your weekends off!  Oamaru is a really nice small town, with plenty of outdoor activities available - including mountain biking, fishing, tramping/hiking, watersports, snow skiing, etc. Your farm duties will include milking the cows, setting up break fences, spraying weeds, and helping with calves.  Ideally we are looking for someone with a farming background, and the position is available from now until at least February.  You must have your own car as the nearest shops are 20 minutes drive from the farm; all necessary VISA requirements; and a good basic level of fitness is needed.  Feel free to phone or email; we look forward to hearing from you!
