Fresh to the market, Rural Directions are pleased to present this Farm Manager position in the stunning Hawke’s Bay district of Maraekakaho, an easy 25 minute drive from Hastings and Havelock North. The business has a total area of 420ha and runs a cattle fattening & finishing operation wintering between 800-900 bulls, steers and heifers. The owners are also looking into lamb finishing opportunities.
This hands-on position requires the appointee to have a high level of competency with both stock management and general tasks. As the property is located in a summer dry area, an understanding of farming in these variable climatic conditions is essential. Quick and decisive decision making based on both instinct and facts is often the point of difference in this environment.
Key to your success in this role will be your understanding of supply and demand turning grass into kg’s/product. Good pasture management and forward planning is a prerequisite driving your decision making.
Accommodation is a recently refurbished two bedroom home. The school bus is a 2 minute drive from the house to the well-resourced Maraekakaho Primary School. There is also a high school bus from the primary school to Hastings.
Applications will be reviewed as they are received.
