    Help with calf rearing during calving period. Help in collecting calves from the calving area and bringing them to the calf shed where they will be fed and reared. Milking and feeding cows.
    Dairy farming is one of the main industries in New Zealand. It is an exciting career with lots of opportunities for those who have passion in farming.
    During the month of June to mid- July, cows are dry - means we don't milk them. They will start to calve (give birth) from 3rd week of July to end of September. This time is exciting, we collect newly born calves everyday, put them in the shed where we feed them with milk for 4 weeks. The cows that have given birth can now be milked daily. The following are the jobs we need help from the travellers: feeding cows, collecting calves, feeding calves, milking cows, fencing. All these are done with my supervision or with my two staffs.
