  • Description


    I am an equine veterinarian running a predominantly equine vet service, focusing on reproduction and ambulatory equine practice. The centre is on a 5000acre functional cattle and sheep farm on the banks of the Murrumbidgee in a beautiful farming comunity with a very small (150people) but vibrant and welcoming community. The clinic is a single vet operation, with a great clientele. A large portion of the business is equine reproduction and embryo transfer. Work is based both at the centre on the farm as well as at surrounding horse farms in the district. I require someone who is hard working, honest and trustworthy diligent and with attention to detail to help me in my daily job, you will get to assist me with performing embryo transfer as well as assisting in the daily jobs of running an equine vet business.
