Stock Manager

  • Southern Waikato

Stockland Trading Ltd is a stunning, family owned property located just 30 minutes from Te Awamutu. With a structured approach to their business the owners have simplified their systems and developed this 1420ha (810ha grazed) operation into three areas; dairy grazing, bull techno system (two 70ha areas) and the fillers block which supports the ewes and young stock.

This is an outstanding opportunity for a Stock Manager to work alongside supportive owners who place strong emphasis on employee well-being. The appointee will be responsible for the day-to-day running of the stock including rotations, pasture management and animal health and will have involvement in the overall farm stocking policy, resulting in an interesting and varied workload.

Excellent stockmanship and pasture management skills, strong communication skills and the ability to embrace the use of modern farming software such as FarmIQ and Farmax will ensure your success in this role.  

If you are a forward planner, driven by measured results and have a demonstrated passion for turning out animals that have reached their full potential then this is a role that you must consider. Furthermore, there is a genuine opportunity for the right applicant to be retained long term in this business with farm management and equity prospects both as future possibilities.

On offer is an excellent remuneration package and a warm, tidy 3 bedroom bungalow with some hunting available on farm. There is a school bus at the end of Duncan Road to Korakanui Primary School and Te Awamutu High School.

Applications close 5pm Monday, 6th May 2019.
