    Farm Manager with a Bright Future

Reference no: 8HR967
Posted: 1 Feb 2018
Salary: Negotiable
Location: Ranfurly, New Zealand
Duration: Permanent - Full-time
Start Date: 1 June 2018

Keen farming professional looking for a progression path

  • Ranfurly
  • 800 cows
  • Well set up operation

The business name says it all:  Loves Cows Ltd. is a progressive sharemilking business where the business owners have a clear focus that has successfully lead to them owning this sharemilking business in their early 30’s…and their plans are much bigger. 

What they are looking for is a committed farming professional at Farm Manager level to release them in the short term to step back from the day to day running of the business so they can work on their business and help you develop your career.

This is a progressive business where land ownership is a realistic goal and the opportunity is for the right person to grow with the business.  In fact, their ideal is that the right person will come on board as Farm Manager for the 2018/19 season, and progress into Contract Milking the following season.

But this is Ranfurly, a little isolated and where the seasonal changes are extreme.  The normal weather range is from 30 degrees in the summer to -5 in the winter.  To mitigate, the Farm Manager’s home is a modern open plan home with a wood burner fire that is well insulated.  There is also a good double garage.

What we’re looking for is a smart farmer (degree, diploma  or  Primary ITO level 4 qualified) who understands that business means looking after the assets and looking after the numbers.  You will want the luxury of working for a business where expert advice is on hand but you will be mature enough to manage the team and experienced enough to run the farm so the sharemilkers can achieve their goals.

If you’re motivated by a challenge, passionate about the dairy industry, and looking for a fast-track progression path into Contract Milking, apply today!
