Farm Manager - Cambridge


Trelawney Stud is an integral part of the fabric of New Zealand’s thoroughbred industry; it is the longestrunning commercial thoroughbred farm in NZ. Covering 170ha of highly fertile farmland, just 10 minutes from Cambridge, the quality pasture and topography are ideal for growing equine athletes.

Alongside raising quality horses, Trelawney is a working farm and is home to a flock of around 550 breeding ewes and 160 head of cattle. There is also an excess of 2000 lambs which are finished on the farm each year.


As the Farm Manager, you will be fully responsible for the sheep and cattle on farm, and you will work closely with the Operations Manager to coordinate the grazing plan for sheep, beef, and horses.

You will be responsible for the R&M on the property, such as fencing, water and any general repairs, which will require a high level of practical skills. There is an ongoing re-grassing programme; chicory is used for lamb and cattle finishing, so a good level of pasture and feed management is ideal to ensure a high level of pasture quality for the Mares and foals.


You will be a positive individual, who comes with a high level of attention to detail and integrity, and will bring the following:

  • A high level of animal husbandry and stockmanship.
  • Pasture and feed management experience and knowledge.
  • Excellent communication and relationship management skills, as you will be working with the horse team along with contractors/suppliers.
  • Practical skills such as general maintenance and machinery.
  • Must be a strong team player, with the ability to work autonomously.


This is your chance to be an integral part of this show piece property, as the Farm Manager. The role comes with an attractive remuneration package including a very tidy, recently refurbished, 3-bedroom home. The property is just 10 minutes south of the Cambridge township, and backs on to the Waikato River, where there are plenty of local activities to keep you occupied in your downtime.

Don’t miss this fantastic opportunity – Apply today!

Applications close Sunday 5th June 2022
