Herd Owning Sharemilker (Orini)

Our clients are on the hunt for their next business partner in the form of a herd-owning sharemilker to join them for the upcoming season. The current sharemilker has had good experiences on the property and has given notice due to unforeseen circumstances.

The 70-hectare farm runs a moderate input operation with in-shed feeding through the 22ashb cowshed with a focus on pasture utilisation and strategic use of supplements. The 250-cow farm achieves an average production of 100,000kgMS, mainly from grass, maize and in-shed feeding meal blends.

The owners are looking for a sharemilker who will treat the property as if it is their own and are willing to grow their own business alongside their own. Therefore, communication is vital, coupled with a focus on the details which will see this farm perform at an excellent level.

The ideal applicant will:

  • Have a minimum of 3 years dairy farming experience, and 1 year farm management experience

  • Have excellent pasture management and feed planning knowledge

  • Excel in animal health and husbandry

  • Have a proven track record for tidiness and attention to detail

  • Be self-motivated and have good communication skills

  • Ensure all aspects of health and safety are managed

  • Value the farm and maintain the property

This is a great opportunity to step up to a sharemilking role with supportive owners who are willing to offer financial support to the right applicant, if required.

Applicants must be eligible to work in New Zealand, be drug free, and provide an up-to-date CV with references, including their current employer. Please send applications to recruitment@agfirst.co.nz using the reference ‘HOSM – Orini’.
