    Farm Manager -Hangatiki

Posted: 1 Feb 2018
Salary: Negotiable
Location: Hangatiki, New Zealand
Duration: Permanent - Full-time
Start Date: 1 June 2018

Be part of the bigger picture

  • 420 cows
  • Well supported farm
  • Handy to Otorohanga

Our client owns and operates a significant family farming business, encompassing two separate dairy farms, a support run-off block, and two drystock properties.  The farm owner now needs to step back from the management of one of the dairy farms so that he can focus more on the ‘big picture’.

This means that we now have an excellent opportunity for a competent Farm Manager looking for a role in this progressive, successful farming business.  This is a well performing farm, with a philosophy of fully-feeding cows 365 days a year and production consistently sitting above 420 kgMS/per cow.

Supported by two additional full-time staff, you will have the resources and support you need to make it all work.  The milking platform is 130 ha, made up of a good mix of flat to rolling contour, with some steeper paddocks. Infrastructure includes a 30-aside herringbone shed, a 300-cow feed pad, a five-bay implement shed and a large calf-rearing shed.  A tidy, warm two-bedroom cottage is on offer.

To be suitable for this role, you will need top notch overall farming skills, excellent communication skills, the ability to successfully lead a team, and the drive to achieve results.  

Located just 10kms from the Waitomo Caves, an hour from the West Coast, and surrounded by great hunting destinations - with a generous roster, this could be just the role for you!
