Stock Manager

Do you enjoy physical activity and like the idea of working with animals?

Stock managers and senior shepherds undertake highly skilled roles, demanding quick thinking and day-to-day decision making over the running of the farm and business. The work is largely outdoors and requires high levels of fitness and strength. Senior staff must be alert to the ever changing requirements of the farm, including pasture management, stock needs, breeding, and the possible extremes of weather.
