Farm Assistant/calf Rearer

Oscar Dairy Ltd Temuka, Christchurch

Job Description

I require additional staff for the calving period. This could entail feeding calves, milking cows, tractor work, riding 2 wheeled motor bikes, physical work and using tools.
Specifics of the position are negotiable depending on experience, interest, how many hours you’d like and your interest in learning about farming.

We are a 440 cow farm located 90 minutes south of Christchurch. There is a small town 10 minutes away and bigger towns 30 minutes away. Positives of the area are being within an hours drive to both Mt Dobson and Mt Hutt skifields as well as being 5 minutes from a prime surf cast fishing spot – which also gets winter waves if you’re an experienced surfer.

Key things you will need for this role

  • A genuine care for animals
  • Be physically fit
  • Experience with machinery, tools and working with your hands are an advantage
  • Happy and positive attitude

A little about me – I am a young-ish (29) contract milker and I spent a few years travelling the northern hemi between 2014 and 2016. Pre-Covid I was planning a trip to South East Asia but had to change plans for obvious reasons, so I chased a career instead. I value honesty and communication – so please bring these to the table too.

Shared accommodation will be provided and I could possibly employ friends if your coming as a group.
