ABOUT THE ROLE
We are currently looking to recruit and train future farm staff. Starting
in June 2018, you will work for at least 6 months on one of our
Canterbury Dairy Farms.
Following this, you will be arranged to work for Evolution Farming,
an innovative pasture focused, UK dairy farming business, and you
will be provided with NZ$2000 to cover travel expenses. During your
time overseas, we will continue to offer guidance and support where
possible, as well as a myriad of contacts to make use of.

Upon your return to New Zealand, you will be given the opportunity,
but not obligation, to work on one of our farms. This will allow you
to develop your newly acquired skills whilst carrying out extensive
practical and theoretical training.
We are looking for a passionate and self motivated individual
with enthusiasm for the dairy industry. You may already have a couple
of years dairy experience, be a recent graduate or, new to the
industry – we can tailor our scheme accordingly. You must be a team
player that can tackle a challenge meaning good communication
and leadership skills are required.
We are currently milking 3600 cows and graze replacement heifers on
five coastal Canterbury farms. The farms are fully irrigated and have
good infrastructure. We run a mix of farming systems including A2 milk,
grassfed, a winter milk contract and a full season, once a day farm. All
are focused on growing and utilising pasture.
We are constantly looking towards the development of our
next generation in farming, and are eager to offer training and
opportunities such as this, to the dairy industry’s future farmers.
