    Description

    Happy to provide work experience on a New Zealand Dairy Farm for people who need it for their Qualifications.

    We live on a working dairy farm with 400 milking cows. We also have another 200 yearlings and calves. A couple of dogs and a handful of chickens. Our cows calve from Mid-March to May and then again from Mid-August through to October. We milk all year round.

    We have 2 tractors that are used for cropping, feeding out, Weed spraying and fencing.

    Very experienced New Zealand Dairy farmers with a stable staff.

    We milk up to 420 cows through a 40 bail rotary cow shed. Excellent facilities and a quality farm to learn all about New Zealand farming.

    We have previously hosted people who want to learn how to milk and rear calves. Learn here in the Autumn and then work your way around New Zealand.
