Hi im jake I live with my parents on a 4000 acre property, we live 5 minutes from a small country town called Barraba. We have over 350 cows and we are seeking labourers to help us with marking and spraying them. We also have a variety of other jobs and projects, these include fixing houses and building sheds, and ploughing paddocks along with mustering the cattle and other jobs such as cleaning and gardening. We would love to meet you and learn about your culture and the different aspects of the countries you come for. We may be able to offer you a 2nd year visa and 250 dollars a week. But this is not guaranteed.
