Goldenamber Dairy is looking for a Farm Manager to add to the team on our dairy business near Cashel in South Tipperary. This position has become available as our current manager is returning home to New Zealand after a two-and-a-half-year stint working with us. The farm is located in Golden, ten minutes from Cashel and the M8 motorway. We run a progressive growing dairy business, currently on majority leased land with our young stock reared on contract. We run a simple grass based, compact, spring calving system focusing on some key KPI’s to deliver positive results for the business. Facilities on the farm are modern and recently constructed to include new large communal calving house and calf house, 30 unit milking parlour with large collecting yard, auto drafter, batch crush, accommodation and feed space for 300 cows and a staff canteen with parking area. We are a forward thinking business and adopt new technologies readily, for example, we have been using LESS slurry management for a long number of years and have also been incorporating clover into the swards in recent years, other technologies include pasture management, protected fertilizer, sexed semen and lean management principals. We are also involved in research trials with Teagasc Moorepark. Contractors are used extensively on the farm. The successful candidate will be responsible for the physical performance of the farm, areas of responsibility to include, pasture management(top priority), milking on shared roster, stock husbandry, health and safety. This position will involve implementing the short and long term business plan of the farm. There is likely to be a high degree of autonomy and the manager will be expected to drive physical performance of the business, achieving key KPI’s. We provide on farm training and coaching and also enrol staff in external training courses. We also encourage staff to join and participate in discussion groups. We believe this approach is benefic
