Waka Dairies is committed to a leadership pathway that includes formal training as well as solid on-job experience.

- Someone who already has the leadership qualities to run a focused and professional team.
As you can tell, Waka Dairies are an innovative employer and they’re passionate about creating careers for their team, keeping a talent pipeline alive for the industry and creating opportunities for a new crop of dairy sector participants to experience and thrive with dairying and ag-sector opportunities. They’ve just employed an apprentice herd manager to prove their point.
This is a serious, business-focused farming environment. High performance and highly informed: 650 cows, 54 bale rotary with adjoining feed-pad, smart tech in the shed, a complete meal mixing system, two compost cow shelters and modern machinery. There’s a lot going on, there’s a lot to learn and there’s a lot of up-side!
So, if you’re ready for farm management, want to round out your experience in a smart business with complexity and opportunity, then take a look at this role today…you can’t afford to miss this one!
