Junior Shepherd

  • Kohunui Station

Are you looking for your first step towards your farming career? Do you have a can-do attitude, the ability to get on with others and a keenness to learn?

Kohunui is offering a Junior Shepherd position to a motivated, self-starter who wishes to develop their stock and general maintenance skills. The variation and scope on this King Country station provides an ideal foundation to learn all aspects of farming amongst a supportive team. You will gain valuable experience being part of this 3600ha breeding and finishing operation and there is ample opportunity to put some hill country experience under your belt with the stock work, mustering and droving by horseback or quad bike.

To get yourself started on this busy sheep and beef property in Aria, you’ll need 1-2 broken-in dogs and there is help on hand to assist with establishing your team. Basic animal husbandry skills are required, while some agricultural training would be beneficial. Previous experience with horses is also welcomed.

This position comes with a genuine career pathway into a Trainee Block Manager role plus an excellent remuneration package including a well-presented and furnished, one-bedroom cottage.
