Entry level Dairy farm position
|Created:||April 16, 2018|
I realize this job isn't equine related but people with equine or large livestock experience are best suited to this job.
PLEASE READ THE ENTIRE ADD before you apply. It includes a lot of information so you can get a good idea if the job is what you are really wanting!
Entry-Level Dairy Farm Position (Abbotsford) this is a great opportunity for someone to learn about dairy farming, dairy cows and gain new skills while getting paid! With enough time, effort and interest, this job can also equip you with skills and experience to access other opportunities in this field of agriculture. Unfortunately, most farms require a new employee to already have work experience and courses in dairy farming.
NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY, We will train the right candidate. Training wage for approximately 1-4 weeks is $11-$12. After the training period is complete apprentice wage is $13. Future wage increases subject to reliability, availability, suitability and willingness to apply themselves to new challenges.
All applicants must be physically fit (must be able to lift 25kg), willing to get dirty, work outdoors in all kinds of weather, have patience, be self-motivated, able to follow, replicate and learn instructions. Applicants must have rain gear (and be willing to use it), their own vehicle with a valid driver's license. Also required is a functioning cell phone with texting capabilities and access to the internet.
This is not a difficult job if you can learn and remember instructions. However, it is physically demanding (there is a lot of walking, moving and lifting involved-that is you will no longer need you're gym membership and fees to stay in shape, you actually will get paid while getting in shape!)
PLEASE NOTE: cows and calves do not take weekends, long weekends, or holidays off, so all staff are required to do some of these times over the year.
This position is part-time with the option of full-time to the right candidate. Although shift times are not flexible, the amount of hours and days you choose to work in a week are.
