The vacancy

What are we looking for?

This dairy farm has 125 dairy cows, milking robots and a feeding robot. Your working day on this farm is therefore different from most Irish dairy farms. Milking and feeding are done by the robots, but you are the driving force behind it and ensure that everything keeps running.

The emphasis in this position is on working with these technologies and grass management. This dairy farmer works with the ABC grazing system.

In addition, you will work with machines to prepare everything for the feeding robot, so you are handy with this.
This farm has divided the calvings into spring and autumn calvings. Not a large stressful peak, but well distributed over spring and autumn. And that works so well!

You work alone most of the time, and you can call on the owner if you have any questions. On your days off (because yes, you do have them) the owner takes over the tasks.

The most important thing for this position is that you have several years of all-round experience on a dairy farm and that you are handy. You are handy with technologies and computer systems and can keep the robots running without any difficulty. You are also technical; you can do small repairs or replace simple parts yourself. And you also need to have a valid driver’s license.

  • keep the robots running and doing small maintenance
  • herd management
