We have about 350 acres and farm suckler cows, beef cattle and about 130 sheep. We require someone to assist us with spring lambing and calving from the second week of February to the end of April. Previous farming experience advantageous but not essential. Good standard of english is desirable. Needs to be flexible in working hours.
