If you’re a Dairy Assistant looking for more responsibility or a 2IC looking to get into a small, agile team, check out this 2IC (Dairy Production Manager) role available at our well-run Quarry Dairy Unit farm in Taupo.

Five minutes from town, this 160 ha farm milks 400 cows through a 40 aside herringbone cowshed.  The Farm Manager has an inclusive management style where everyone has a say and everyone’s ideas are considered.  Being a smaller farm, you really get to know your land, your animals, and your team.  You’ll enjoy working with the animals, running toolbox meetings, and performing general repairs around the farm such as fencing, etc.  Employees are encouraged to grow and develop and the farm manager makes time to work with you on the skills you’d like to develop.

This farm offers a fantastic work/life balance, running half the year on a 4/2 roster, and the other half of the year on a 6/2 roster.  The role comes with a four year old three bedroom home with a single car garage.  Pāmu offers competitive remuneration as well as health insurance, death and permanent disablement insurance, kiwisaver contribution – and more!
