Location: Ashburton
Region: Christchurch & Canterbury

Contact: 0274262728
Listing Added: 15/06/2022

Hi,
We are a large scale dairy farm (2000 cows) 10mins out of Ashburton (Wakanui). We are after ideally a couple or a duo of friends who want 3 months fulltime work to help us and our team over our busy season. Starting July 1st. The jobs we are advertising are

For x1 full time calf rearer helping our girls (team of 3 calf rearers) out feeding all the new calves, this includes tubing, feeding them, cleaning gear, caring for any sick ones. Everything can be taught, but a caring attitude, smile and positive attitude are key :)

The other position is helping our larger team out on the farm, picking up calves, getting cows in, milking and just general farm duties and helping out the team however you can. This may suit someone who wants to dabble in dairy and see if its for them, or just a fun way to experience some true kiwi farming with our team of awesome guys and girls from all over the world.

The reason we are after a couple or duo, is we offer a furnished house on farm that you will be sharing with each other. Its always nice to live with someone you like ;) We run a 5 and 2 roster, so you will have the same days off to go up the mountains, rivers or whatever it is that floats your boat. We will supply you with all the gear you need, endless yarns and a happy place to work.

I should note this position has already been advertised a few months ago, however the couple we picked have decided they arent coming to the South Island anymore..

Look forward to hearing from you
