Assistant Farm Manager - Two Positions

Piopio – 850-900 cows

Great Career Step

Our clients are a family owned business who sharemilk on two
properties right on the Piopio town boundary. Each farm is run
independently of the other with one family member sharemilking
on one and another Sharemilking on the other.

We are seeking two good Assistant Farm Managers, one for
each farm, to help with decision making and be able to step up
to the plate to take the reins for short periods as required.

As such you will need to be able to show that you have all the
skills necessary for the successful day-to-day running of a large
farm including:

• managing or supervising people
• thriving in a team environment
• leading by example
• a strong work ethic
• excellent communication skills
• pasture and feed management
• animal welfare and husbandry skill
• machinery handling
• record keeping

You will be well supported by the sharemilker, a farm consultant
and great farm staff.

Both farms are extremely well set up, with top notch infrastructure,
modern machinery, one with a 60 bail rotary with Protrack
Vantage (900 cows) and a covered feed pad and the other a 54
bail rotary with Protract Drafter and soon to be installed in shed
feeding (850 cows).

You will be willing to continue your learning ideally already
having some formal training, either degree qualified or Primary
ITO level 4, with a minimum of three years in a similar level
role in a New Zealand farming environment. You might be on a
smaller farm ready to step up into a larger working environment
or you might already be on a large farm ready to step into a
larger role. You will need to be a New Zealand Citizen or hold
New Zealand Residency status.

Both jobs have good warm brick and tile housing, are in easy
access of schooling right through to secondary with a thriving
rural community right on the door step.

If this sounds like you, and you are wanting to progress your
dairying career please apply: Email your CV and Cover Letter
to or call 07 823 0117.
