Theland Tahi Farm Group is looking for two keen, self-starters to join their teams at two of their farms at Herd Manager level.  Pureora North is a 720 ha, 1600 cow farm near Te Kuiti, while Pineview is a 390 ha, 1200 cow farm near Reporoa.

What makes working for Theland Tahi Farm Group different is that they have control of their milk product right through to the consumer.  For the team on the ground this means:

  • there will be regular visitors to your farm
  • you will get to understand more about the milk supply chain
  • you will be part of a business that invests in the development of people both on-farm and through its ‘Dairy Academy’
  • this is more than ‘just a job’ this is a career where what everyone does every day matters
  • you’ll be in a business with a global perspective

You will need to pass a pre-employment drug test, hold a clean drivers’ license and have 2+ years experience within the dairy industry.  You will need to demonstrate:

  • An understanding of and willingness to learn more about pasture management
  • The ability to ‘think on your feet’
  • Sound animal health skills, including the ability to identify and treat basic issues such as lameness and mastitis

These are exciting roles that covers all aspects of farming within a great company, with a focus on the delivery of results.  With a real focus on career development and plenty of opportunity for progression within the company, this is a fantastic place to build your professional farming career.
