Hello i'm Nadine

Our first lot of backpackers are looking at leaving on the 17th February - their last day being the 16th.

We are seeking a fit / enthusiastic person to join our team and help on our busy 800 cow farm.

We are located 20 minutes from Invercargill on the Gorge Road-Invercargill highway.

Duties will include: milking the cows and learning about general farm duties

Start time for milking is 5:30am and second milking begins at 2:30 in the afternoon.

Guaranteed a minimum of 40 hours per week and.the work here is long term if preferred

Our roster at present is: 6 days on - 2 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.

Wifi is also available but is proportioned - total cost of wifi per month is $90.00

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 5.

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
