Shepherd General (North Waikato)

Mahuta Stud is a family-owned sheep and beef farming operation based at Glen Murray in the North Waikato. They are seeking a new team member to assist with the day-to-day farm operations and work alongside the owner to progress in their business. 

The 400-hectare property is home to a Hereford stud consisting of 230 breeding cows, supporting young stock and 800 breeding ewes. Surplus cattle and sheep are also finished on the property. A key highlight to every year is the annual bull sale held in September. 

The role is to assist the owner with the general farm duties but there are also opportunities to step up for the right person with mentoring and guidance from the owners.
