Hello i'm Nadine

Sadly - Our amazing couple, Celeste and Hilmar are leaving on the 1st December so we require an enthusiastic mature person to join our team on farm before then.

Duties include learning about all aspects of dairy farming,  milking the cowes, feeding calves and other general farm duties.

This is a full-time live on farm position.

We are located 20 minutes from Invercargill on the Gorge Road-Invercargill highway at Kapuka - near Waituna Lagoon.

Current season - we will be calving down 750 cows.

At present - start time time is 5:30am.  Milking in the afternoon - 2:30 start.

Guaranteed a minimum of 40 hours per week.

Our roster at present is: 6 days on - 2 days 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 $100.00

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 6.

This is a very 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.
