Have you considered taking the plunge and trying to make your grade in agriculture across the pond, well then keep reading below!

Many young farmers take the plunge and try to gain experience in agriculture in different cultures, in a bid to learn more about the industry and get hands-on experience at the same time. Does this sound like you? Then keep reading!

A farm in New Zealand could be about to provide you with the perfect opportunity to not only travel but also learn all about dairy farming on a bigger scale.

The farm, located in Fairlie South Island, New Zealand, is currently searching for a dairy assistant on the farm. The herd is 750-strong and milked on a 5- bail rotary parlour. The job is for the season starting this July and It won’t be a walk in the park and will be full of hands-on experience, with calving due to commence in early August.

There is expected to be over 300-calves within the first month of calving, making it a busy period. The farm also places an extra emphasis on maximising grass production, meaning there are plenty of knowledge for you to bring home.

All-round training will be provided in every aspect of the job and the area is said to already home many young farmers from around the world. The farm had been described as a “great place to work” and on offer is a “good salary package”. Not only this, but accommodation and a car will be provided to whoever is successful in their application.
